How to get there:
Take E-39 north from Bergen. After Romarheim, cross the mountain pass, then exit right just before the long (downhill) tunnel to Matre. Pass under the Hwy., then turn right to start driving a very long mountain road built to construct the hydro power dams and plants to the north. Drive this road to lake Storavatnet, elevation near 710 meter. Continue passing the dam to find a signed trailhead about 500 meter onwards. This location is N60.86377, E005.75129. There is parking for 1-2 cars off the road, several parking spots that are very shortly before this spot may also be used.
Route description:
Take the trail south to lake Vetlavatnet, fork right where the trail splits. As you get near the west end of the lake, leave the trail left and find a natural passage that will get you to the base of the north-east ridge of Torrisskarfjellet. The terrain is steeper here, but several routes can be used to ascend the lower part. The terrain is less steep higher up. Continue directly to the summit.
I did this hike with my friend Harald. We came across directly from Vetlevasseggi, the route described above was used to descend and return back to our car. The descent took about one hour.
