Ascent Trip Report

I hiked Salen after finishing Tyven much earlier than I expected. I started at the base of the Sikksakkveien (zig-zag path) and quickly made my way to the top of the ridge, and then across to the summit. Like Tyven, the wind was whipping at the summit, so I stuck around just long enough to sign the register and take some photos. I descended to the west and took the trail just above the E94 road back into Hammerfest, jogging through the streets and back to my car. In hindsight, I think I hiked this in the opposite direction as intended, as most of the trail arrows I passed pointed the other direction.

Stats: 18m up, 7m at summit, 14m down, 2.0 miles, ~550ft gained.
