Jervvasstind (also known as: Gjertvasstind and Østre Styggedalstind) is Norway's ninth-highest mountain. The 2,351-metre-tall (7,713 ft) mountain lies in the Hurrungane mountains in the eastern part of the municipality of Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It lies on the eastern end of a mountain ridge including the mountains (west to east) Store Skagastølstind-Vetle Skagastølstind-Sentraltind-Store Styggedalstind-Jervvasstind. The village of Skjolden is located 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) to the west.
The first element is the genitive of the name of the lake Jervvatnet and the last element is tind which means "mountain peak". The first element in the lake name is jerv which means "wolverine" and the last element is the finite form of vatn which means "water" or "lake". The old form "Gjertvasstind" is wrong and misunderstood (there is no word "gjert" in the Norwegian language).
