Ascent Trip Report

Although largely a quite misty day, until late evening I drove up the tollroad/bomveg in Leirdalen to Leirvassbu. From there walked around the Leirvatnet glacier and up the intermittent snow covered or very bouldery slopes to the top of Kyrkjeoksle (1843m) and then across to the very steep sided and pointy Kyrkja. Not much of a view because of the mist there were glimpses of the glaciers below. And the loud roar of a nearby avalanche was quite scary in the mist.
