How to get there: This mountain is on Hardangervidda, a large mountain platau in southern Norway.
Route description: Our route (on New Years Eve) started from the mountain hut Rauhellern, just north of Langesjøen (1206 m). The mountain is just on the southern side of this lake on a fairly direct line to the mountain hut Lågaros.
Comments: We had been stuck in a hurricane near the DNT hut Rauhellern for more than 24 hours. Finally, only hours before the new year we made a determined attempt to reach the self service DNT hut of Lågoros. The route brought us across (the very flat) mountain Store Skrekken. The name carried a special significance to us this scary night as it means `great horror'.
