Ascent Trip Report

We made a car trip with my in-laws to Ljungdalen where we parked. We hiked to the Helags Mountain hut all four together. Spent four nights in the hut with full food service and a four bed room. Sauna every night.
My father-inlaw joined us for a hike the second day, to the Alphabet Lake and to the glacier. The third day, Eva and I set off in the early morning and followed the southern ridge to the summit. It was foggy. Same same way back and before reaching the Alphabet Lake, we met three other hikers, a women with her five year old girl and her mother - three generations. We had sauna and dinner before they came back to the hut. We hiked back to the car for the long drive home.
