Information:

How to get there: We normally start from our mountain hut west of Lillehammer. Another starting point is the parking area at Verskei.
Route description: From Verskei one can ski a couple of different routes, south along the ridge east of the Dokka valley or first to Nysetra, then across lake Kroktjern merging with the former route. This is excellent terrain for skiing. The cairn is located at N61:06.598, E010:01.498. The elevation is 1012 meter, 4 meter lower than the highest point.
Comments: This is a very nice viewpoint. The mountain ends abruptly with cliffs overlooking the nice lake below. There is a nice and well built cairn here. The view towards south is extensive as there are no other mountains this way. However, the highest point is the next hump north with a very small cairn. I have skied to this peak ever since I was a kid, we normally visit this point every time when staying at our hut in winter or Easter.
