Kuglhornet - Østkammen

Guided climbing trip:

Mt. Kuglhorn, also known as "Huglhornet" - is a hidden treasure in the shadow of its bigger brother Stetind. The mountain offers more exciting and harder climbing than Stetind, over its beautiful and spectacular dragon back!

Unlike Stetind, the decent follows another and calmer way down than the way up the mountain.
