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:
From Storhaugane, 1433m, ski down to the small lake south-west of the summit, then continue down to the lake 1289m. From here, ascend the peak.
The description is part of a nice ski route from Finse to the DNT self serve hut Hallingskeid. The previous peak was Storhaugane.
The trip across to the west summit required about 30 minutes, arriving there around 1330. My trip next continued to Søre Grøndalsnuten.
