Location: North 60:52.840, East 006:26.452 (GPS on the summit)
Primary factor 388 m.
Climbed February 6. 2005
How to get there:
From Bergen, drive E-16 to Voss and continue along E-16 to
the traffic circle at Vinje (Gas station on your right). The road
across Vikafjellet to Vik (on the Sognefjord) is left, take this road
and continue about 7 km to Myrkdalen. A new ski resort is being
developed here. There is good parking.
An alternative, shorter approach is to continue approximately 7 more
km until you are above the switchbacks on the road and also on the upside
of the spectacular waterfall that is next to road on its left side. Route description:
From the ski resort, either ski up the downhill slope or take the lift to
Ondrahaugen, 863m. From here, locate the steep bowl high up to the north-west and
continue on a course that will bring you just to the right of this feature.
The steepest part of the climb starts here. Follow the broad ridge up and slightly
left while staying clear of the cliffs on your left side.
Consider the snow with respect to avalanche conditions. Higher up, the slope
levels off and the cairn of Finnbunuten comes into view. Ascend to the small saddle just
south of the summit, then complete your climb to find a very nice cairn and a nice
I did this climb with my son Pål Jørgen. We were in Myrkdalen
primarily to do downhill skiing with Fjellsportgruppen in Bergen, however around noon
the weather improved and the summit became irresistible. We skied from the
top of the skilift in about 1.5 hours to the summit, breaking trail the entire way.
