Ascent Trip ReportGood grief, why does highpointing have to be so difficult!
Zybartoniu Kalnas or Kruopynes Kalnas is only a few tens of centimetres lower than Aukštojas and Juozapines (apparently, according to the book “Europe’s High Points” by McKeating and Crolla) but it's a completely wooded flat-topped expanse accessible only after many kilometres on unsealed roads.
Find a sign saying "Vilkorabiškiu Pavesine" and walk past a farm and a kilometre or so up a track into the woods and then stroll around slightly to the north within the 290 metre ring contour - your guess is as good as anyone's! Pleasant enough broad-leaved woodland but Aukštojas is so much more rewarding.
