Description

A beautiful descend in Hurrungane! Perfect for linking Store Dyrhaugstind and Store Ringstind together to a long day out in the mountains. Follow route description to Store Dyrhaugstind, make sure to bring your skis from Nordre Dyrhaugstind.

Continue along the ridge past the summit of Store Dyrhaugstind.

You will soon se a flank on your right hand side, narrowing into a couloir heading south-west.

This is your line! You should be able to see the bottom of the couloir, where it meets the route to Store Ringstind at the entrance of Ringsbreen glacier. Put on your skis at the top of the flank and follow the fall line down the couloir.

It is neither too steep nor too narrow, so it is pretty straight forward down to the glacier.

Be aware that this descend is south facing, so it gains a lot of sun exposure during the day.

Take this into consideration when planning this trip, and aim for hitting the line early. Down at the glacier you can either continue the descend out Ringsdalen or you can put on your skins and aim for Store Ringstind.

I you have some power left, the last option is highly recommended.

Follow the route description to Store Ringstind.

You will definitely get a memorable day!
