Norwegian Mountains, Møre og Romsdal
Haddalshornet via Klungsgylet, Jun 23 2009
To the main Haddalshornet page (maps, route descriptions, other trip reports, etc.)
It was Jonsok (mid-summer evening in Norway), and I was invited to Terje's house for rømmegrøt (sour cream porridge) - and strawberries for dessert. I looked forward to meet Terje's family, and as I hadn't had rømmegrøt for at least 15 years, I was looking forward to the dinner too...
After a very delicious (and solid) meal, it felt natural to move around a little, so we decided to take the Klungsgylet route to Haddalshornet. Terje had not done this route yet, and looked forward to it. I brought the camera in case we spotted some cool bonfires (mid-summer tradition) in the region. And while at it, perhaps even document the route through more pictures (so here goes..)
Terje seemed to enjoy this steep off-trail route to Haddalshornet. The most awkward point on this route gets a little easier when you have an ice-axe that you can chop into the vegetation (ref. picture above). So I brought a short axe for this particular point, and Terje agreed that this was a handy tool for the occasion.
We reached the top 9:40pm, and the bonfires hadn't really picked up yet. We could see some, but it was still a bit early in the evening. We should have been up here two hours later. The sunset was gorgeous.
The pictures were taken with a Canon EOS 450D + Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM F 4-5.6
