Location: North 37.80961, West 025.21127 (GPS at the summit)
Difficulty: (YDS) class 2
Climbed September 8. 2018.
How to get there:
See my description for Fotasperrnuten.
If Botnanuten is your only goal, then drive a bit further and access the peak
The most direct route would be to access this peak from
Byrkjesete. I came from the north, see comments below. '
I visited this summit on my way back from Fotasperrnuten.
To hike between these two summits took about 2 hours. My route
was not really optimal, I was in no hurry and sort of walked where
it looked best at any given moment. I first descended from Fotasperrnuten
to the northeast, care must be taken as the terrain is rugged. Next, I crossed
over point 1117 on my way towards point 1106. I did not visit this point, but
rather hiked on the north side
before crossing into the small valley
between the two ridges. Finally, descending along a small trail to the broad
saddle connecting to Botnanuten.
From here, an easy ascent mostly on smooth
rock to the summit.
The descent should not be repeated as I kept getting myself into
steepish, difficult terrain. One should really locate the trail
to Byrkjesete and stick with it. After much (avoidable) trouble,
I crossed the river on the bridge that almost directly connects
back to the parking where I recovered my car.
