|Our route traverses the
mountain by ascending the West face and descending the East ridge.
A brief route description: Follow Steindalsbreen up to the West face of Nállancohkka. Beware of huge crevasses on the glacier. The West face was climbed by following an easy snow slope. The East ridge has some very steep sections where a rope can be necessary.
Follow the East ridge to the saddle between Nallancohkka and Gaskacohkka.
Climbed by Bjørn Arntzen, Geir Jenssen and Torgeir Kjus, 5. August 1987.
From Alpine Journal 1975:
Winter climbing in Lyngen
J. M. G. Sheridan
"In the early winter of 1973, the Mountain Leaders of the Royal Marines and one of their Instructors' Courses, were given clearance to visit the Lyngen Alps in N Norway on completion of their Arctic Training.
Dinotind (1326 m) (marked Nallancakka on the map) was climbed by 3 routes all of middling Grade II and Grade II Sup standard. These were the SW Ridge, the W face and the NW Ridge. The long ridge running E from the N Summit of Dinotind was traversed later and included in a long expedition to climb Gaskacakka (1516 m) by the W Ridge. From the col below the W Ridge, the route is nearly 2000 ft long and in places very steep; reminiscent of Observatoty Ridge on Ben Nevis. The party of 8 who climbed this peak was caught out by
darkness and, instead of returning along the ridge, they made a descent from the col down to the glacier whence they walked up to the high camp. They arrived exhausted and very cold just before midnight after 18 hours climbing."
