Turbeskrivelse

https://www.rypdal.net/wordpress/uranostind-falketind-2014/

This trip requires a lot of scrambling. 

From your car, follow the trail along Koldedalsvatnet Lake, then an unnamed lake, and then to Andrevatnet Lake. At the northern end of Andrevatnet the trail becomes a bit challenging to figure out where it is, so make sure you use the Outtt app to guide you. Cross the river that comes from the top of Stølsnosbreen mountain and then hike on the left side of it. Along the river, it tends to be rather steep. There are also some swampy parts and loose rocks. On the northern ridge, towards the top, it is again very steep and will require you to cleavage some rocks. 

Note: If it is early in the season, be aware that there still may be snow on the ground or even snowfall. 

Faktaopplysninger

Some areas can be very steep. It is recommended to bring a climbing rope, a helmet and other safety equipment. 

Overnattingsmuligheter
