Description

From the parking lot at Dalen, heads south and cross the fields.

Follow the marked trail, if visible (there should be marks on the trees) to Viromsetra in Grasdalen.

Here you leave the marked trail and head for Botnen to south west.

When it gets steeper, turn to the south and follow the most gentle slope in the bowl on the west side of Tunga.

At 1300 m.a.s.l.

head to the west and enter the glacier through a steep passage.

Be aware of slipping due to icy conditions here.

When on the glacier, turn south and head straight towards Kongskrona.

The last climb to the summit may be icy as well, so you might have to bootpack the last vertical meters to the top plateau.

The summit is one of few in Norway covered with an ice cap and is completely flat.

Enjoy the spectacular view.

Descend is either done by the ascend route or through the glacier.

The last alternative involves navigating through crevasses and joins the ascend route at Botnen.
