1996-07-30 - Glitterheim - Glittertind - Spiterstulen
The night was cold, at least 5 degrees below zero. I wonder if our neighbors were cold under the tarpaulin? We walked away already at 8.00 AM. Magnus manage to forget his favorite towel. We have to come back next year to pick it up. The way up offered an even rising. Lucky for us that we started early because when we reach the snow fields we saw deep footsteps. It must have been hard to walk with snow up to the knees. The last hundred meters were steep. The sun began to shine and we increased the speed.
At the peak 2470 meters above sea it was calm and everyone enjoyed the silence. We stayed there half an hour and then we began the walk downhill. We met a crazy Swede who had camped just beside the peak in two days waiting for the right photo weather.

The rest of the hike back to Spiterstulen in high speed and we were back at 13.30 PM. After a fast shower we than began our journey home. We arrived at 24.00. Don't forget to stretch your legs after a hike. Magnus had enormous problem leaving the car when we arrived. We didn't receive any rain under the whole week!
