Mountaineering

Falketind and Uranostind

Pionerruta

Tyinholmen is the natural starting point for climbing Falketind

Falketind 2067 moh

The organized hikes from Tyinholmen today follow the same path as the first climbers did in 1820. The route goes straight from Koldedalshytta at the end of the road in Koldedalen and to Snøggeken (Falkebreen).

On the glacier, rods and ropes are used. Towards the wall you hit for the lowest point on the mountain ridge between Falketind and Østre Stølsnostind, where the snow reaches the highest on the glacier.

The ascension is relatively accessible, with combination of climbing on grade 2 / 3 - fuse rope must be used. The trace is almost after the first steep ascension with several fine shelves and alternative choices along a natural line up the wall. At the top there is usually a snowdrift that must be crossed, normally without major challenges. In the end it is ok to cross the last climb up the north ridge to the top of Falketind.

Put on sold solid mountain boots, good attire - you can experience all seasons on the trip! Remember to bring plenty of food and drink.

The tour emphasizes safety and a sympathetic pace and calculates approximately 10 - 12 hours up and down.

The experienced mountain guides bring along crampons, rope and necessary equipment.

The route is considered to be medium challenging following the route up towards the glacier on the eastern side of the pond 1518, across the glacier on the right. The route goes up the gap between the Uranostinden and the Slingsbytinden. From there, following rocks and scree straight to the main peak.
