How to get there:
Drive E-39 north from Bergen. Just as the road descends to lake Husdalsvatnet (shortly after you exit a tunnel), make a sharp right signed for Molvik. Follow this road to Molvik, just as you descend a hill, note a small road that forks left. (Location N60.6330, E5.5557.) Follow this road up the valley Molvikadalen. You will get to a gate, if locked, then find parking (off road) before this gate. If it is open, proceed with care (the road is narrow and a bit rougher) another 2.5 kilometer to Molviksætra where it ends. There is parking on your right just before the road ends. This location is N60.66285, E005.54314, elevation about 270 meter.
Route description:
Follow a nice trail up the valley to the pass named Molvikaskaret, location N60.67295, E005.53877, elevation 455 meter.
Continue slightly beyond the col, then proceed uphill to you right. Continue uphill following grass, there are no difficulties. You will arrive at the west summit with a proper cairn. However, the highest point is located at the east summit that is easy to see not very far away. Continue there, a very minor cairn marks the high point.
I left my car around 0920 and made a brief stop in Molvikaskaret at 0950. The ascent was easy and I arrived at the west summit at 1015. After some photos, I continued across to the higher east summit arriving there at 1030. I carried my hand level and measured the two summits in both directions. The conclusion was in full agreement with the map, the east summit is higher.
Next, I returned back to the Molvikaskaret col. My next goal was the higher Husdalsfjellet.
