Thanks to Roger Hakansson for adding this peak.
Beautifully shaped peak. The name means sharp as a nail. Not possible to reach the summit without technical climbing. Easiest route is to follow the east ridge. To get on the ridge you first have to cross either the north or the south glacier, look out for crevasses. When on the ridge try to find the best way up to a place where you see three diedres, the one on the right is the easiest to climb. Further up you come to a shelf, the only way up from there is a overhanging rock, still not so difficult as it looks like, but very airy. About 50 meters above this problem you will reach next difficulty, a flat rock slab that takes you up to a hillock from where you see the narrow crest which leads to the true summit.
