Climbed May 25, 2015
Difficulty YDS class 2
How to get there:
Drive E-39 north from Bergen. Before you arrive at the long
Eikefettunnelen, you have lake Husdalsvatnet on your right
hand side. Drive past the penisula Storneset, then park at the
very first turnout on your right hand side. This is location
N60.65633 E005.48946, elevation about 65 meter.
Walk north along the E-39 road, pass a small creek, then locate a spot
where one can access higher ground. This is at location
N60.65730 E005.48571. There are nice steps leading uphill. One would
think that there should be some kind of trail. This is, however, not the case.
Continue uphill, you will reach slightly more flat terrain, then another steepish
section. There are several passages leading uphill and this is pretty much it.
The highest point is likely a rock located near the west side of the summit area.
I started at 1335 and was a bit surprised to see that the nice steps that
must have required quite some work to put in place, led nowhere. The hill
was still quite ok and a very direct route took me to the summit. There are
two competing locations, quite close, I do think that the rock is indeed the
highest spot. I arrived there at 1405, so 30 minutes up. After 5 minutes, I descended
the same way and was back in my car at 1435.
Thanks to Knut Sverre Andersen, his trip report pointed me to the start of this hike.
The trip continued to Såto.
