On September 3, 2019, scientists at Stockholm University measured the summits of Kebnekaise and determined that the highest rock of North Peak (Nordtoppen) was a meter higher than the melting snowcap of the South Peak (Sydtoppen). Since the permanent snow and ice of the Sydtoppen is likely to remain lower as the Earth's climate warms, the Nordtoppen is now the highest point in Sweden and an peak with over 1500 meters of prominence.

Climbers who attained the Nordtoppen summit at any time now have credit on this web site for the current Sweden high point and ultra-prominent peak. Climbers who only climbed the Sydtoppen have credit for a ultra-prominent peak for their lifetime totals, but not the peak that now appears on most lists on There are a few historic lists that include the old pre-melting Sydtoppen.
