From Tromsdalstind summit at 3am.
Many summits visible from Tromsdalstind.

Hamperokken in the center foreground. The entire middagsaksle ridge route is visible. It's the long ridge split in sun\shade.

The skyline in the back shows part of the Jiekkevarre traverse. Look from the summit of Hamperokken, behind and just to the left of the summit pinnacle is Holmbuktind. One can see the top of the skiing route. Follow the ramp of snow to the pass, and take a sharp right to get to the summit. From there, continue left to Jiekkevarre, the highest dome. Continue looking left to the gap and onward to Kveita, which is the next dome of snow on the far left edge of the picture.

Also in this photo, in the foreground to the left of Hamperokken is Gabrielfjellet, which is an extension of Hamperokken, but can be considered a separate peak.

The peak immediately to the right of Hamperokken is Bjørnskardalstind (trans. Bear Pass Valley Peak.)

When I look at this, I'm reminded of the Mount Abbot group of peaks in the Sierra Nevada. What a great view!
