Of the many peaks named Tröllakirkja ("Trolls' Church") this one best deserves the name! From the road it looks difficult but in fact it's a surprisingly easy scramble - you just have to pick a good line. There are a couple of "steps" to ascend (each one a different layer of lava) - I've put waypoints at each one but I'm sure there are many other routes that are just as easy.

Ascent 1

We came down here - and it looked easier than the route we used on our ascent.
