This slender peak faces the summit of Tjeldbergtinden. It is higher than Tjeldbergtinden and gives you a remarkable panorama over the town of Svolvær and the northern part of Vågan Island. You make the ascent on a good trail over a straight ridge line—sometimes dizzying, but not dangerous when the ground is dry.
