Okshornan
No, it's not part of Breitind, but it's only a 20 minute drive away, and is a tempting climbing target. I havn't found any climbing information about these peaks so far.

You seldom see peaks like this rising from the sea.

Thanks. It's even more seldom to see them in these conditions. The jagged edge of Arctic Norway tends to be a bad weather magnet.

You may find some photos from a hike to the main summit of Okshornan 559 m summer 2011 on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150205449427531&set=a.10150205448132531..312780.617832530&type=1#!/media/set/?set=a.10150205448132531.312780.617832530

We found a cairn on the summit probably from the first ascent by Norwegian mountaineer Peter Wessel Zappfe around 1920-1930

Thanks. There are a lot of great pictures of this area, but it's poorly presented on summitpost...so far.
