How to get there:
Locate Seim at the south end of a fjord about 7 kilometer north of Knarvik. Next, locate a farm named Elsås, about 2 kilometer south-west of Seim, at the end of a dead-end road. Drive there, the road first runs a bit west from Seim, then fork uphill. This location is N60.60890, E005.24213, elevation about 170 meter.
Route description:
From this trailhead, head uphill and follow some very rough tracks left by a heavy forest/farm tractor. As these tracks sort of end near the crest of the hill, follow a trail that descends left, that is to the west side. You will then bump into a very clear trail marked with wooden sticks painted red on the top. Follow this trail (right) to the summit. There is a summit register at the highest point.
I started out at 1410. Instead of going left where the farm tractor tracks ended, I followed the crest. This turned out to be a bit cumbersome with a lot of trees that made walking slow. I ran into a good trail near the summit point, arriving there at 1430. I returned along the trail until I located a nice passage connecting (going uphill and left on my return hike) back to the forest/farm tracks. I was back at my car by 1450.
The next peak is Skardsveten.
