How to get there: You must fly to the icecap or walk up Knækdalen from the fjord.
Route description: I skied to the south side to the bottom of a rock band that seemed to extend quite a long way up. Climbed on good ice with some extra support from the rocks on my left side. There were two slightly steeper sections where the rocks formed small hammers. The upper slopes were somewhat gentler, with good ice.
Comments: This mountain is quite unique with its location in the middle of a glacier and with its distinct geological stripes and curved bands of different rock. It was first climbed in 1952 by the Swiss climber NNN. (need to find this name.) The cairn from 52 was still quite well preserved on the west side of the summit. I started (solo) from Base Camp (just south of Gog) at 0340 AM and reached the summit at 0600 AM.
Two other members of our team (Rod and Phil) reached the summit the following day after a fine technical climb of the steep north rock face.
