Romsdalshornet is a mountain in the municipality of Rauma in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The mountain is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of Åndalsnes, along the Rauma River and the highway . The mountain Store Venjetinden lies 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the mountain and 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) to the west lies the mountain Store Trolltind—part of the Troll Wall/Trollryggen ridge.
The first "official" ascent was 1 September 1881 by the Danish climber, Carl Hall, together with Norwegians, Erik Norahagen and Mathias Soggemoen. They arrived only to discover a cairn set up by Christen Smed and Hans Bjermeland around 1828. Previously none believed Romsdalshornet had really summitted until Hall discovered their cairn.
