How to get there:
The mountain is located directly south of Larstind. Route description:
From the upper part of the Gregory Glacier one can clearly
see three mountains on the eastern side. The best approach
to all three is to ski up to the col between Larstind and
Birger Larsens Tinde. I proceeded to climb the mountain on
foot, but it became clear that one can (and probabely should)
climb the mountain using skis (and thus reduce the crevasse danger).
A cairn was built on the top and
this mountain is named after Birger Larsen, the Norwegian trapper who
built the small cabin at the lower end of Knækdalen. Just
as his cabin is the natural starting point for any party travelling
from the fjord, then this mountain marks the end of the Gregory
Glacier. Our 1996 base camp was situated just below these three
mountains on the Gregory Glacier.
The view across to Peterman is very good.
