Difficulty YDS class 2
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.
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.
