Location: North 60.48399, East 005.98446 (GPS at the summit)
Climbed on April 22, 2017.
How to get there:
This mountain is located directly across the lake from the nice DNT self-serve hut Gullhorgabu.
The most convenient routes to Gullhorgabu is either from the north, starting
at Småbrekkene (elevation 524m) along the road from Dale to Hamlagrø.
Alternatively, one may start from the south, from the parking at lake
Kvitingsvatnet. This report covers a start from the south.
First ski from lake Kvitingvatnet to the DNT hut Gullhorgabu.
From Gullhorgabu, ski down to the lake (best to ski a bit left rather
than directly down). Cross the lake and enter the distinct, narrow valley
called Vestre Trongasmog. Ski up until you reach the first small lake, just
above 900 meter. Turn sharply left here and ascend to a more level area.
From here, one may ascend (do a traverse left), the slope leading directly
to the summit. Check the avalanche conditions, an alternative would be to
go north, then ascend from the north along gentle slopes.
I had started from lake Kvitingvatnet and
Leaving this summit around 1600, I now headed towards Gullhorgabu.
I had descended to the north side of lake Nedre Dukavatnet, then connected
directly to Øvre Dukavatnet. I then continued into Vestre Trongasmog and
skied steeply uphill to reach the summit around 1550. I descended at 1600, the
weather was bad, white-out. I arrived at the DNT hut around 1700.
