Åsa and I summited Glittertind from our high camp at beautiful Steindalen through the west flank. Visibility 10 meters on the summit. Rather icy and cold. Care taken on the summit due to the assumed cornices.

Climbed Glittertind during a 12 day hike in Jotunheimen. Bivouac at Leirtjonne and from there to the top. No visibility due to snow. Return to bivouac place and then continued to Spiterstulen.

Just me and my friend on the summit around nine a.m. What an experience! Great to be alone on the one of the highest summits of Jotunheimen.

Climbed Glittertind with Roman, Timm & Elmar during a trip to Norway in our school vacations. Jotunheimen is a very special place!

Solo tour to the summit from spiterstulen. Bad rainy and snow conditions. Whiteout at the summit, it get near as possible to the summit, knowing there is the danger of cornices,

Don't remember exactly the date, but it was in the most incredible warm Easter, which I think was 2003. My ambition was to sleep in an open bivuac on the summit, but I didn't quite make it there. I slept under the open skies at around 2200 meters, and then ascended in the early morning the next day. I descended down the south-west flank (which was rocky and no good skiing) and onwards to Veobreen.

Perfect views and nice weather while the ascend. weather shifted into bad thunderstorm with lots of icigles and rain at the descend. No wind. Crampons were fine because of the ice in the upper part. Trace was very dangerously near the cornice. Climbed from and to Glitterheim.

We were carrying skis all the way from the July-green valley around the starting-point Spiterstulen, 1100 meter. My brother Trond and I hit the snow at 1700 m. and start cross-countrying all the way to the peak in a too-much-sun-condition.

And Glittertind is more dramatic and scenic than Galdopiggen which is few lousy meter higher.
