Falketind - pionerruta

Jotunheimen

Summits 8 - 10 h 5 km

From the east Falketind towers against the sky like a bird of prey, and has had a magnetic effect on mountaineers for hundreds of years. The Pioneer Route has received increased attention in recent years, and many seek to guide companies in order to take the varied and great trench across Falkbreen to the vertical northeast wall and follow the pioneers' route to the top.

Falketind is today among the more popular peaks in Jotunheimen, and during pleasant weather in the summer you are rarely alone on top.

Already in 1820 Chr. Boeck, B. M. Keilhau and Ole Urden did a dramatic first ascent of Falketind.

Getting there
From the E16 take off and follow the smaller gravel road to Tyinholmen, where you turn into Koldedalen.
