Description

Skarsnosi east face is a giant bowl with a steep entrance.

The risk of triggering an avalance is great so timing is everything.

Spring snow in the morning when the sun has made just a perfect 3 cm soft surface is required for a sucsessfull descent.

After the steep part the Skarsbakkane offers sustained steepness all the way down.

This rout suggest a return on the ridge back up to the top.

Depending on the conditions crampons and ice axe is nessecary.

An alternative is to follow the summer trail back to Breidalen.
