A brief route description of the Buktedalstinden-Mjeldskardtinden
Start from Straumsbukta. Scramble up Buktaaksla to Rundheia (515).
Follow the East ridge of Buktedalstinden to the summit. This is 4 km
of easy walking
except some scrambling near the summit. Continue down the West ridge
towards the pass between Buktedalstinden and Mjeldskardtinden. This
is quite steep,
and some people will probably prefer to use a rope. Easy scrambling /
climbing from the pass to the summit of Mjeldskardtinden. The last
bit of the North ridge is narrow.
We continued southward and climbed down to the pass between
Mjeldskardtinden and Gråtinden
before continuing down Straumsbuktdalen which was a nightmare of dense
thicket and boggy ground. Bring back the goats!
