How to get there:
A good starting point is Finse. This summit may also easily be reached from Hallingskeid, the next stop on the railroad after Finse, when going west. Note that many trains bypass this station without a stop.
Route description:
This trip started with the climb of Vestre Låghellerhøgdene. I skied west (downhill) on the south side of the summit of Vestre Låghellerhøgdene, then across to lake 1334. Here, I skied north on the east side of the 1414m summit named Larsaslahøgdi. Some care is needed here, contour around this summit and ski down to the north of the peak, that is, avoid the slope above lake 1287, a big cornice must be avoided here. From the saddle, ascend more or less directly north to the pointed summit. You will pass a power-mast without any obvious purpose. There is a small cairn at this summit.
The skiing from my first summit of the day to this top was nice, but involved a bit of routefinding. I arrived around 1240, about 1:15 after leaving my first top. My next goal would be the slightly lower Vestre Storhaugane.
