Climbing Stetind

The peak of the landmark mountain Stetind in Nordland, Norway, is a popular destination for hikers and climbers. The normal route is a hiking trip until one reaches the lower Halls Fortopp, but the traverse from here up to the main peak, from which the photo is taken, requires belaying, and a short climb via the fingertip traverse to pass a rock called "Mysosten" (grade 4). A more difficult but very popular route is via the South Pillar, consisting of 14 rope lengths.
