2157m. Route description: From the barrier take the track to Urdalsvatnet, and further on towards Uransobreen, before rising to the terminal moraines obscuring the snout of the glacier follows a line up to the south ridge though grassy terrain interspersed with boulders and small outcrops.

Follow the airy ridge over Uranostind South in a superb position before descending slightly to the col. From here the route rises over some boulders until the ridge forms more of an arête again. Follow the arête with increasing interest and exposure until suddenly you reach the top. Spectacular!

Descent: Continue along the narrow ridge for 30m until the arête morphs back into the hill. Descent the northwest slopes to the call, at the beginning on steepish snow until the col is reached between the Uransotind and Slingsbytinden and it is possible to scramble down to the Uranos glacier.
Descend the glacier and back to the starting point.

Great day, perfect weather. Moved together through the easy but sometimes exposed climbing sections. We used 11.5h round trip taking it pretty easy. Descended the glacier, slightly tricky to find a safe way at the bottom but overall fine.
