Description

From the Innerdalen parking area, walk west down the road before you can start skinning up towards the east ridge of Viromkjerringa.

The approach to the ridge has many boulders so the route finding can be difficult, there is a powerline with a cleared area that could provide a better skin track. Once on top of the ridge continue west until you reach the summit.

The ridge traverse requires moderate scrambling with ice axe and crampons.

From the summit, you have several south-facing couloirs you can choose to ski down or continue further west and ski the more popular west-facing couloir down towards Børsetkjerringa.
