Ascent Trip ReportDid this one by accident in thick clouds when heading for the main pass between Kagrafell and Búrfell. I was just below the summit when the clouds lifted, so I just went for it. I then headed over to Rekavíkurvatn by staying above all of the streams coming out of Reyðardalur and Bjarnardalur.
Here are pictures from my 4 day trip to Hornstrandir. Of note: The camera had battery issues, so the date stamp in the bottom corner reset to 1/1/2002 every time I took the batteries out. Anyway, the pictures were taken in July, 2006....
