FATMAP difficulty grade
Ippočohkka is one of the highest peaks around Narvik, and one of the finest to ski.
From the road, climb up the slopes just right of the creek to reach the lower part of a ridge.
Then traverse along the left side of the ridge, working low-angle terrain to gain elevation.
At 1050 metres, the terrain gets a little steeper (just over 30 degrees) until you reach a small plateau and lake at 1207 metres.
This is an excellent place for resting before tackling the remaining part of the ascent.
From the plateau, the ascent is straightforward - follow the prominent north-east/east-ridge of Ippocohkka to its summit (25-30 degrees with one short section 30-35 degrees).
Descend via the same route.
On lower part of the ridge, at around 1420 metres, you can also ski a steeper lines to your left that join the ascend route further down.
