Ascent Trip Report

I did an after-dinner solo hike while Gunna hung out in camp. The trail leads right to the top of this peak. The views of Kverkfjöll and the northern terminus of Vatnajökull are amazing. It took about 45 min to an hour to top out. We headed for the Kverkfjöll ice caves the next morning...
