From Sylarna Fjällstation head southwards on the marked path until you see the Three distinctive pinnacles of Templet cross the stream and pick your way up to the first pinnacle.

Route Description

Abseil from the first pinnacle to the sadle and star your way up to the second and third pinnacle following the ridge to the summit. From the summit of Templet head westwards on the ridge and after a bit scrambling follow the ridge northwards towards the summit of Stor Sylen. Just before the summit you will encounter circa 20m high slab which would be best climbed on the western side. From the summit of Stor Sylen follow the ridge northwads to the summit of Lill Sylen. From Lill Sylen decend towards NE to Slottsdalen where follow to marked path back to the Fjällstation (cross the river by the bridge next to the Fjällstation).

Essential Gear

Summer acsents need little more than a 40m rope for the abseil and possibly some middle sized gear to make oneself feel more protected.

In wintery conditions crampons and atleast one axe are a must.
