How to get there:
A possible strating point is Hjølmo. This road (closed in winter) forks from Hwy. 7 in Øvre Eidfjord. I parked at location N60.37336, E007.17045, elevation about 850 meter.
Route description:
Follow the trail towards Vivelid. Just as this trail crosses a flat area with a hillside up on your left, there is a trail fork with an alternative route to Hadlaskard forking left, crossing the mountain Kvasshovden (Storasåta). Just as this trail descends back down near the 1080 elevation, look for a smaller (unsigned) trail that forks left. Follow this along the river Fljoto to Steinsstølen. Continue up the broad valley, then turn south on the east side of Haraldshaugane. head up the valley Trolldølebotnane and finally west up Shitbotnen. Finally across easy terrain southwest to the summit.
This trip was planned as a 3 day ski trip to visit peaks far west on Hardangervidda. However lack of snow and a missing bridge (crossing the river Veig), altered my plans and I ended up skiing this mountain on my return from the Hadlaskard hut.
