Nornal (loop) route  Sucess!

Nice hike, got lucky with good weather and great views. Lots of people on the mountain - there were about dozen on the peak when we got there. The normal route is mostly the 'S3' trail clockwise, with a short detour at the beginning to see the waterfall Svartifoss. It's all class 1 except for some class 2 when you depart 'S3' onto 'S4' to tag the summit. Total distance was 18k, or 11 miles. You can refill water at Svartifoss, then again from a brook at the northern-most point on the 'S3' trail, and that's it until you're near the end. Confirm those water sources with the information desk before you head out.

Usual Route  Sucess!

Perfect weather and fabulous views while on the summit. Wind really picked up during the descent and was howling most of the way down.

With Fred.

normal route  Sucess!

Fun hike, but terrible, terrible weather unfortunately. Picking out the trail in the clouds and rain was interesting
