The ups and downs of Jotunheimen

Jotunheimen has 275 peaks over 2000 metres and contains the highest peak in Norway Galdhøpiggen at 2469 metres and the second highest is Glittertinden at 2465 metres, however, with its snow and ice cover Glittertinden can be higher than Galdhøpiggen. The highest I climbed on the last trip was close to 1600 metres and the peaks towered around me, an impressive site even when they were shrouded in cloud. Here is an Elevation graph of the trip with the key features marked. Accompanying this I have included a Map of my trip which will help as I compile the day to day record.
