    SOTA: LA/TM-043 Sveinsbuvarden

    For what was reported to be 2023s last day of summer weather, I went for a walk up LA/TM-043 Sveinsbuvarden. The summit at 746m above sea level a has 360° view of the surrounding mountains. The walk up was not much of a challenge, though half way up you’re given the option of taking a…
