Mykjetinden (605), Berg kommune, Senja. 

Mykjetinden as seen from Mefjordvær. 

A short description of the North ridge route (facing the camera): From Bjorvika in Mefjordvær, scramble the main ridge up to the base of «Hælen» (the Heel) (500 m) where you will find two drilled bolts. The first pitch (I-II) leads to the top of the Heel and the obvious headwall.

There is a narrow notch in the ridge which provides access to the headwall. The headwall is approx. 60 m grade II-III with lots of moss and loose rocks. Protection is difficult and sparse. 

There are two bolts near the summit cairn (60 m rappel).
