FATMAP difficulty grade
An aesthetic traverse described starting from the north, with the aim of skiing spring snow on southerly aspects.
Could also be done as an out and back trip descending to the north in colder conditions for a power descent. The approach from the north involves crossing a plateau so be prepared for some time on the flat before climbing towards the summit ridge.
This is wide enough to skin in good conditions (consider coutou), and it is worth booting to the small summit to get the full 360 degree panorama.
Watch out for the cornices which frequently form here in the high winds. A number of lines can be skied in descent of varying gradient, before contouring Svartskogtinden to gain another south facing descent.
Be cautious to find the correct line in descent crossing a convexity and traversing right to an open slope.
Cornices are often present here and a short passage on steep slopes is required.
