(visited by Terje Mathisen)

05-May-2004 -- On my way back to Oslo from 61°N 11°E I had some spare time, so I decided to make an attempt on this confluence which had only been visited once before.

According to maps, the main road into the area is locked with a gate, but there seemed to be an alternate route which went over Gråberget ("Grey Mountain"), which is the name of both a hill and the farm located on the south side of it.

I located the road and followed it all the way to the farm, but when I got there, the road was closed with a home-made barricade, which had to be taken as an indication that the people living on the form didn't appreciate any through traffic going between their farm buildings.

At this point I was still more than 4 km from the point, so I realized that I didn't have enough time to hike the remaining distance, part of it over wet marshland. It seems like a mountain bike ride along the main road would be the best way to get close to this point in summertime.
