Detailed description for the approach is included with the Classic route. Only two routes are known up to Þumall (the Thumb), but most likely it is possible to climb the peak in more ways.
The classical hiking route to Miðfellstindur is for the most part the same as to Þumall, but once you get onto Vatnajökull you spiral around Miðfellstindur an top from the northen side. Miðfellstindur has one alpine route that goes directly up the south face and one ice climb next to the hiking route
Approach is over Skaftafellsjökull, either from Hafrafell side or maybe from the Skaftafell side if the glacier doesn’t retreat much more.
