My first mountain   Sucess!

Solo hiked to the summit from the mountain hut Spiterstulen. A long and steep ascent which took me 6 hours to the top. I got lost in the fog on the top plateu on the way down. After an hour I found a group of hikers who I joined during the descent.

Day hike from Spitertulen  Sucess!

Since I liked the atmosphere at Spitertulen, I decided to stay there a bit longer and go to Glittertind on a day trip. The upper part of the hike seemed to last forever - there was a fair bit of distance to cover, on a boulder-strewn summit area - until, finally, the real summit came into view.

Cloudy  Sucess!

Cloudy and quite miserable but nice day out. Managed to get to the top without putting crampons on.

Complete whiteout  Sucess!

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.

Glittertind  Sucess!

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.

Alone  Sucess!

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.

Very nice hiking peak  Sucess!

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,

Snowstorm  Sucess!

Walked up from Spitterstulen. Fine trip except very low visibility due to snow the upper 300 m. Couldn't see a thing. 7 hours for the trip up/down

Beautiful from the East  Sucess!

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.

Great day's climbing  Sucess!

Weather was cloudy in the morning but the afternoon was great. Summited Glitter-Rundhø and Ryggehø before returning to Stiterstulen.

Climbed from Glitterheim  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: From Spiterstulen Date Climbed: July 1973  Sucess!

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.
