Location: North 64.41405, East 011.24473 GPS on the summit)
Climbed October 12. 2017
Difficulty: YDS class 1
How to get there:
From Steinkjer, drive north on E-6, but then, quite shortly, turn left onto
Hwy. 17, signed for Namsos. Follow this road to the south end of the fjord Løgnin
(this place is called Sjøåsen), where you turn left onto Hwy. 766.
As you get to the first sign of the fjord going south near Buvika, turn right onto a smaller
road where you see a white house (located at this road). Follow this road 5.3 kilometer, pay
(self serve) toll along the way. The road heads east with the lake Sundsvatnet
on the right hand side. You will see two white houses and a red building, one hundred meter
beyond this, turn right onto a smaller road. This road crosses a field then bends left. Find parking
here at location N64.43853, E011.28746, elevation about 20 meter.
Continue along the road, it climbs to a local col, descend on the
far side. As the road bends right you will find the beginning of the
trail marked by several poles on the roadside. The trail forks right and
is marked (more than necessary) with poles all the way to the summit.
Just before the summit, the trail crosses a small ravine on a big wooded
bridge, obviously only needed for transportation. There are two summits
separated by a shallow col. The first (rightmost)
summit has a cairn. This
point is 1-2 meter lower than the summit located further left right next
to a small building.
This summit has several more structures. Comments:
I did this hike with my friend Erik. We drove from Steinkjer and wwere ready to walk by
1115. The hike was pleasant with
nice fall colors and a good view
back down to the fjord and to
the town of Namsos. Eventually, we hiked into
the low clouds and visibility became more limited.
We arrived at the cairn at 1300 after quite a relaxed walk.
As the two summit points were nerly equal in hight, I had a first
opportunity to test my new hand level, it just arrived in the mail.
The new instrument confirmed
that the summit next to the
building is the highest. We stayed around for perhaps 30 minutes
before descending. The descent was equally nice and we
were back at the car at 1550.
Many thanks to Erik for good company.
