Location: North 60.85017, East 006.10413 (GPS at the summit)
Difficulty: (YDS) class 2
Climbed April 18. 2015.
How to get there:
Drive Hwy. E-16 to Evanger. This is about 20 kilometer from Voss in the
direction to Bergen. Measure from the exit to Evanger. Cross the narrow bridge
and continue left. Drive 12.2 kilometer, going uphill,
make a sharp left direction Eksingedalen. The road crosses a local
mountain pass before descending to Eksingedalen.
The road is
narrow and there may be
quite a bit of snow, so drive carefully.
At kilometer 23.4 you are down in the valley at
a place called Nesheim.
Make a right turn here. Continue to kilometer 28.9. A smaller, dirt road forks left going up
This road may (perhaps?) be closed in winter. Continue 3.8 kilometer, that is to
kilometer 32.7. Find parking here. This location is N60.85561, E006.18388, elevation about
From the trailhead, go directly west. Your route should go more or
less directly to the pass named Heimsta Belaskaret, elevation about 1060 meter.
From here, you see the mountain for the first time.
Continue a bit steeper down a narrow gully to Lonevågen.
Cross and ascend somewhat north in order to gain the broad,
north flank of Skjerjavasshovden. Follow this gently uphill
(south) to the big cairn that marks the highest point.
I left my car at 1205 and skied directly towards the col. The descent on
the far side was a bit steeper than anticipated, but did not cause any
trouble. I skied directly up (steeply) on the far side, then much more gently
to the summit, arriving there at 1345.
It was pretty cold as a near gale wind hit me from the north.
Leaving at 1355, I followed the same route back to Heimsta Belaskaret.
Here, I decided to include Trollahorgi in my trip before skiing back to
my car. I arrived at this summit at 1445, then skied downhill towards
my car. Returning at 1515, seemed close to ideal. A very nice
drive home to a warm sauna followed by a Heidi special Saturday
