Ascent Trip ReportUp from the Salkastugorna hut, via Sinnivaggi, joining tourist route on final climb. Over Sudtoppen and onto Nordtoppen before returning over Sudtoppen and descent via tourist route to Kebnekaise Fjallstation. Lovely route up, pretty tedious route down (glad I didn't go up that way).
Spoke to Guides at Kebnekaise Fjallstation re the highest point of Sweden. It varies between Sudtoppen and Nordtoppen depending on the weather. Last week, it was measured by the scientists at Tarfara Research Station and Sudtoppen was 30cm higher than Nordtoppen. In summer 2018, Sudtoppen was 30cm LOWER than Nordtoppen after a 6 week period of hot weather. Best to do both summits to be certain in my opinion!
