Ascent Trip ReportA beautiful, corniced ridge connects the main summit to Nordtoppen, looking more like you are in the Alps than in Sweden. I did the traverse solo with just poles but would highly recommend crampons and an ice axe since the snow on the main summit turned to hard neve on the windblown Nordtoppen part of the ridge. It's a long way down to the glacier on the west side of Kebnekaise.
