2016 Ruten - Norway.

Date walked: 09/10/2016

Time taken: 5.5 hours

Distance: 12.5km

Ascent: 800m

A Norwegian "Munro" and a wee hump.
It's a while since I've been bagging any munros now because I'm in Norway. Anyway here are "Munros" as well.
Ruten would be a typical one if allocated in Scotland.
The altitude is 1039 m above sea level, (the same as Meall Ghaordaidh.)
The prominence is 742 meters.
And the summit is the cairn in the middle: There is a book to sign there, and every ascent is logged at www.rutenregisteret.no
But the very best thing of this mountain is the view to Trollheimen, (the Trolls' home). You can also see Sylan at the border of Sweden, and the Atlantic Ocean. The long slog up is worth it.
The mountain to the left is Snota in Trollheimen. At an altitude of 1669 meters, that top would be a good challenge if you are coming to Norway some time.
The King's Crown and the Queen's Crown are in this picture among hundreds of other tops. (Kongekrona and Dronningkrona).
