east ridge

Rulten (1062 m) is perhaps the finest peak in Lofoten. It consists of 2 major peaks, separated by a deep gap. Austre Rulten, the highest one, was first visited on a splendid first ascent by Slingsby, Collie, Mundahl and Slingsby JR back in august 1903. We will follow in their footsteps via the east ridge, a long and varied climb with slabs, moss, crack climbing and several knife sharp arêtes. Stamina and experience is required as this is a long day out. You will be rewarded with a magnificent view over the wild mountains and pinnacles in Raftsundet. We firmly believe this is the finest mountaineering route in Norway!

"Jeg har lenge drømt om å bestige majestetiske Rulten. Ved trygg og sikker føring av Signar ved Alpin Adventures ble Rultenbestigelsen en fantastisk opplevelse. Anbefaler Alpine Adventures på det varmeste" Miriam Saarheim, guest on Rulten summer 2019
