How to get there:
Locate highway E-134 connecting Haugesund (south of Bergen) with Telemark and Oslo. The main tunnel (more than 5 kilometer long) on this mountain crossing is called Haukelitunnelen. A good starting point is the turnout at the west end of this tunnel. This turnout is at location N59.83919, E006.98871, elevation about 1090 meter.
Route description:
Ski a short distance along the (closed) summer road, then descend to your right and cross near a lake, elevation about 1030 meter. From here, it is basically uphill. There are many variants, most of the slopes are safe to ski. Near the summit, there is a flat section, then possibly best to climb the final hill a bit to the left (east) of the summit.
I started out at 0900 and had a nice sunny day climbing this peak. The climb took slightly less than 2 hours at an unhurried pace. There are two summit points right next to each other. It appeared that the summit with a cairn, perhaps is sligtly lower. I did visit both points. From here, my trip continued to Breifonn.
