Climbed May 15, 2014.
How to get there:
Drive Hwy. 13 from Rosendal, all the way west, then south following
the coast passing the small village of Husnes. Continue about
15 kilometer after Husnes. Look for a sign that says "skisenter"
going left while the main Hwy. continues only a short stretch to
a ferry connection. Drive the smaller road about 3 kilometer, in
a right curve, a dirt road heads left, up the valley. Take this
road, it will get you
to the ski center. Park here,
this is a good starting point. Pay NOK 20 for parking at a self serve
system on the wall of the ski center building. This location
is N59.81738 E005.91364, elevation about 200 meter.
Head directly up the ridge, then follow the broad ridge to
the summit. A storm has destroyed part of the very lower forest,
pick your way through this belt in a location that avoids too
I stayed at Rosendal hotel and decided to do this peak before
breakfast. The morning drive was nice and I started hiking around
0535. The walk took about 1:10, arriving at the unmarked summit
around 0645. I enjoyed the view and took some pictures, then headed
back down. I was back at the car at 0800 after a very nice morning.
