How to get there: Drive from Nestun towards Arna. Turn right in the first traffic circle. Drive this road until it forks and you can make a left on the road named Dyngedalsveien. Continue on this narrow road until you just have passed a small lake/pond on your right side. Continue straight until you see a small knob on your right. There is parking off the road on the right side as well as a gate in order to cross the fence. This is the trailhead, location N60:19.682, E005:23.722, elevation approximately 81 meter.
Route description: Just hike up the hill. If you go right and follow the south ridge, you may even find a small trail leading upwards more or less along the ridge. You first arrive at Hånuken, location N60:19.655, E005:24.042, elevation about 232 meter. Continue along the ridge to the summit of Furekampene, there is a faint trail in this area.
Comments: I picked up Arnt at the airport and we had planned to do a few small "unknown" hills before dinner. The next day we will travel to Geneva in order to attempt the 4061 meter Gran Paradiso in Italy.
We parked around 1815 and headed up to the local top, reaching it around 1900. Returning to the car, more or less directly downhill, we were back by 1930. This was the last peak I needed to climb in order to complete the local part of my Distance based Prominence Ladder.
