About Stetind:

Stetind, also called Stetinden (Northern Sami: Stádda), is a mountain in Tysfjord, Nordland, Norway. In 2002, it was voted to be the National mountain of Norway.[citation needed] The mountain had several attempts at first ascents. First was the German Paul Grussfeldt and Norwegian Martin Ekroll summer 1888, then the Dane Carl Hall and the Norwegian mountain guide Mathias Soggemoen attempted in 1889. They did not succeed, but Carl Hall built a cairn on the lower summit 500 meters southeast of the main summit, now called Halls fortopp (1,304 m). After 1900, William Cecil Slingsby also failed. It was not before 30 July 1910 that Ferdinand Schjelderup, Carl Wilhelm Rubenson and Alf Bonnevie Bryn finally summited. Arne Næss, Ralph Høibakk and K. Friis Baasted did the first winter climb in 1963 on the eastern wall. Arne Næss and four others were in 1966 the first ones to summit via the west wall.
