This is Norway's national mountain, and no wonder. It's a perfect obelisk with sweeping ridges rising straight from the sea.
Located in Ofoten (Nordland county), the peak has historically been an important coastal landmark. In Norwegian climbing history, this peak is legendary, and has (unofficially) been voted to be the National Mountain of Norway.
The mountain is sacred to the Sami people, and is called Státtáchåkkå in the Sami lenguage.
Climbers from all over Norway (and Europe) travel to Tysfjord to climb this giant granite during the summer months (july and august)
