Ascent Trip Report

I hired the following hiking guide.

Marius O. Larsen
Tindevegleder/Mountain Guide
Vassdalsveien 424
8530 Narvik
Tlf +47 48157144

Marius was great and I really enjoyed hiking up the mountain with him. Once we got to the summit of Holmbuktind we quickly found that too much of the glaciers had melted for an easy approach to Jiehkkesvárri. We did continue on towards Jiehkkesvárri until it because clear there were too many large crevasses to make the summit. We then decided to head back. This hike needs to be planned for end of June early July to ensure enough snow on top of the glaciers for a good assent of Jiehkkesvárri.
