This is a fine picture, but the mountain is Bárrás. Pältsan cannot be seen from this place. I just added a couple of pictures from Pältsan.

Thanks Matti, I changed the title. These mountains are unfortunately not familiar to me, maybe a hike from Signaldalen to Kilpisjärvi would help in that...

I'm trying to locate the mountain on a swedish map that shows the whole area, also Norway and Finland (http://www2.lantmateriet.se/ksos/index.html), but I can't find any summit named "Bárrás". Could it have another name on the map? How high is the summit, and in which country?

Hi aaron. This mountain can't be seen on the map (the link you gave) because it doesn't show the area northwest from Gappohytta, that's where this mountain is situated. This photo shows the view to the west of the Finnish-Swedish-Norwegian border (Treriksröset). Barras is near the southern (or southeast to be exact) end of Signaldalen (Norway). The mountain is 1419 meters high according to the Lantmäteriet map BD1 (Treriksröset-Råstojaure).
