How to get there:
This summit is east of Klæbu, the former center of the small municipality having the same name, merged (in 2020) with Trondheim. From Klæbu, head 2.4 kilometer north on hwy. 6680, then turn right on hwy. 6700. Continue about 1.8 kilometer, then turn sharply right (keep right again) and finally, a very short fork left to arrive at a place you may park at location N63.32173, E010.51133, elevation near 235 meter.
Route description:
Continue on the forest road. Keep right at the first fork, then stay left at the fork near the small lake with elevation 264 meter. Follow the road uphill until it ends. Continue up along the small ridge up on your right hand side, then traverse east (left) in order to reach the area with a small creek running north to the lake Syrsjøen at elevation 436 meter. As you approach Gullsiberget from the west, head north to avoid the steeper terrain, then turn south to reach the summit. The summit is between trees at a fairly flat area.
I did this trip with my friend Jostein. We started breaking trail at 1045. It turned out that the terrain after the end of the forest road was quite complex for skiing this early in the season. Progress was slow and eventually we decided that I should ski to the summit while Jostein started a careful return. I crossed a meadow that led me to a narrow passage connecting to a small pond below the summit. From here, I needed to ski north before gaining the summit plateau. I made the summit at 1340, a bit breezy and not a place to linger long. Leaving at 1345, I soon caught up with Jostein and we returned to the car at 1500.
This was my first ski trip for the season.
