Description

From the road, climb up the slopes just right of the creek.

As the angle eases, follow the creek bed on its right side.

Above 900 metres, cross to the left where snow cover over the river is solid.

Follow the creek valley until about 1060 metres, then head south-east up a steep slope (35 degrees).

At 1280 metres the angle eases, and you reach the base of a small glacier.

Ascend the wide glacier slopes (no glacier gear required) to reach the ridge that leads up Nuorjjovarri E summit.

Leave your skis on the ridge to scramble the last metres to the summit.

The view is fantastic and you really feel like you are in the wilderness.

Descend the same way.

Alternatively, when you start skiing on the ridge, drop on further to your left; here the east face is quite steep (40-45 degrees), and offers some nice turns down to the glacier.

You can also reach this peak from the small plateau/lake beneath Ippocohkka - just head south to reach the creek valley at 1060 metres (see above).
