Ascent Trip Report

Hiked this one from my friend Bjössi's house at sea level in Hnífsdalur. Original goal was Kistufell about 3km to the west, but low-hanging clouds and heavy fog prevented me from seeing a safe route up Kistufell. Hiked up Breiðafell instead. Steep scree most of the way. Wandered around the summit plateau in the fog for quite a while looking for the high point. Finally found it. Compass skills got me back to the exact spot where I ascended. I had my friend Bjössi's black Labrador retriever (name - Annubis) with me. Windy and foggy on the summit!
