(visited by Ville Saari)

23-Jun-2006 -- This was a relatively easy Confluence to visit. The nearest road is less than two kilometers away and the surrounding terrain is flat gravel plain full of vehicle tracks that can be followed without a four-wheel drive. The nearest track is only 80 meters from the Confluence, but I wasn't able to find it in the complicated maze of tracks, so I left the car about one kilometer away and walked the rest.

The Confluence is on the side of a conical hill, but the climb is only about 10 meters up a shallow slope that can be walked up with no need to use hands.
