Ascent Trip Report

The last in my Scandinavian trilogy, this is certainly the busiest of the 3 Nordic countries. From the car park (easy to reach from kiruna by bus) the route is flat and boring until the very busy Fjallstation (free camping here). Ascent day is straightforward, with only an icecap on the summit to be wary of. Crampons not required when I climbed, but maybe earlier in season.
