FATMAP difficulty grade
An interesting short couloir descent allowing a traverse from west to east on Arnøya.
You are unlikely to find crowds on this one. Originally skied in part in April 2023 (accessed from the base), the line is described here as a traverse.
It could be combined with an ascent of Fosstinden and/or Tågtinden to make a bigger itinerary. It may be possible to ski into the couloir given good snow conditions.
Alternatively, a 20-25m abseil can be made from rock anchors on the north side of the couloir.
(2x30m ropes recommended).
Assess the snow conditions carefully, and be aware of the presence of cornices on the north side of the couloir.
