Fun boulder hopping ascent of Finland's highest from the Norwegian side. First I went too far, even though I found a yellow cairn which fits the description of the summit, but the elevation shown by the GPS was wrong. Luckily I decided to hit the next higher peak on my way back, which also had a yellow cairn near the summit, this time accompanied by a register and the correct elevation. So make sure to hit all three bumps on the plateau (that way you will have been to the summit for sure), because it is too remote to go back a second time.....
Climbed from Norwegian side Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2012
Easy climb from lake Guolasjarvi over rocky terrain and some snow patches. Reach the summit after 3 hours with incomming fog.
Allways foggy during decent. Climbers must have experience in use of maps and/or GPS.
We reached the top from the huts in a couple of hours. It's a hike up, basically jumping from one boulder to another until you reach the top. Nice weather and very good views from the highest point in Finland. Otherwise, nothing special
