Route Climbed: from Spiterstulen Date Climbed: August 2002
I climbed Galdhopigen in summer. From Spiterstulen it's a wonderful experience. You don't need any special equipment: you can find snow in some places, but the ice-axe and crampons are not necesary. There are a lot of rocks and the way is not very clear (you can follow the "T" in red marked in the rocks), but be careful in wet weather or if the fog falls.
If you decide to climb from the Juvashyta hut you need special equipment (ice-axe, crampons, rope...) because there is a glacier with some crevices.
In the top you will find a little hut when you can drink a cup of coffee or tea.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
