Location: North 60.63171, East 007.30558 (GPS at the summit)
Difficulty: (YDS) class 2
Climbed March 5. 2016.
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.
The description is part of a nice ski route from Finse to the DNT self serve
First, ski from Finse across lake Finsevatnet or possibly on the north shore of the lake,
in order to reach the westernmost point of the lake. Continue northwest, pretty parallel to,
but south of the railroad line. Just before the railraod turns more north and the valley that
will start descending towards Hallingskeid, keep your elevation
and start ascending the gentle slopes that
climb towards the summit. The highest point
is near the northwest side, that is, cross the summit
plateau and locate the highest point.
After a good breakfast, I was skiing around 0830. I made my own
track first across a piece of Lake Finsevatn, then across an area
with a few winter huts before hitting the river and the main route
going to Hallingskeid. However, I passed gradually more left and easily
climbed to the summit, arriving there around 1110.
This trip and route continue with Storhaugane.
