How to get there:
A good point of reference is the small community Hosteland, located north of Masfjorden. To get there from Bergen, drive north on E-39. Just before E-39 enters the 4 km long Eikefet tunnel, there is a choice of route. Forking left onto Hwy. 570, then connect from Masfjordneset to Duesund by (cable) ferry. This is a scenic option. Alternatively, continue on E-39 passing the two fingers of Masfjorden, then an uphill tunnel to the intersection with Hwy. 571. Turn left here, descending on the north side of Masfjorden to meet Hwy. 570 near Hosteland.
The third, and perhaps best way, is to use the ferry from Leirvåg. Turn left in the very first traffic circle in Knarvik (immediately after the bridge), follow Hwy. 57 to Leirvåg. This ferry leaves 15 minutes past the hour. The return ferry leaves Sløvågen 15 minutes before the hour. The crossing takes 20 minutes. From Sløvågen, you have 14 kilometer to reach Hosteland.
The trailhead for Grååsen is located about 1.2 kilometer north from Hosteland along Hwy. 5436. There is a small road forking left. The location is N60.85137, E5.26046, elevation about 45 meter.
Route description:
Continue along the forest road that climbs with a couple of bends. Just when it seems to level, follow a clear trail that forks right. There are a few alternatives, but there are no difficulties.
This was my 3rd. (of 7) summits climbed this day. I started out around 1130 and reached the summit at 1200, noon.
