990 < 1000 < OldBridgeFjell < 1191
962 is closer than 1191
1032 is closest
1075 is 3rd

So... 1032 then 990 then 1075, which I believe puts it between 1000 and 1032. According to Peakery, there are only 2 possible answers left.

Not my turn.

Peakery seems to be incorrect according to my official local map.

Glenn, I never heard of Peakery before, so you coming up with the names of mountains made me think you knew this area of Norway.
Now everybody are on the same level.

I believe that can be narrowed further:
1032 then 990 means OldBridgeFjell >= 1012
Therefore, 1012 <= OldBridgeFjell <= 1031

Since Peakery is apparently sorely lacking, I can only guess with random numbers now.

1024?

Hint:
The mountain is named after a woman land owner, who when being told that her land would expand to where she could place the "bordermarkingstone". She, unfortunately for her, took one step too many, but her heirs own to the bottom of the mountain.

Hmm... that's why I needed to know about Phil's guess! I'd have guessed higher than 1024 without that knowledge.

1020m?

Hægefjell 1022m is the correct answer.
