Ascent Trip Report

Started out with Molly from above the toll gate at Raubergstulen. Parked at Juvvasshyttan and started out on the trail, crossing the Juvflye. Roped up after the morain and climbed the Dangerous Glacier, Styggebrean, to the rocks and up these to more snow to the summit. Coffee and bread at the summit hut. Saw hundreds of people roped up on the glacier and we met almost all of them when descemding. This is the shortest route to the summit with the smallest gain. A dog was missing in a crevasse. The owner just continued up the mountain and had two guides looking for to rescue the dog. We had a nice day on the mountain. Drove down from the hut to the Röisheim hotel
