Rismålstinden (1342), Balsfjord.

Rismålstinden is the steepest mountain in the Háhttagáisi area. The easiest route to the summit starts from Svensborgdalen north of Fjellfrøsvatnet following the SW-ridge all the way to the summit. A scramble of approximately 100-150 metres along the upper part of the ridge will bring you to the summit.
