Ascent Trip Report

With Robin and Geraldine Howie. By bus from Galdesand to Juvasshytta, a Summer skiing centre NE of Galdhøpiggen. Because of the need to cross a glacier and because we only had one ice axe and not much else we joined a guided party to climb Galdhøpiggen, 2469m, and the highest mountain in Norway. It’s very easy and we felt rather ridiculous with about 50 people on a linked string of ropes crossing the glacier. At least we helped by carrying ropes, running them out and coiling them up. At the summit is a small hut selling drinks and postcards etc. We descended the same way to Juvasshytta and took the bus back. By using the bus it is thus possible to ascend Galdhøpiggen from the valley (and Lom and Otta too) in a single day. We had the best weather on the mountain, it being misty both before and afterwards.
