Location: North 60.65454, East 005.81497 (GPS at the summit).
Difficulty, YDS class 1
Climbed on October 6. 2020
How to get there:
Drive E-16 from Bergen.
Continue E-16 past Trengereid towards Voss. After Dale, turn left on
Hwy. 5xx to Romarheim. Drive this narrow road to Straume where you
cross the fjord on a bridge. Very shortly after this bridge, turn right
on a small road. Continue straight when pavement ends, then turn left.
There is parking right away on your left hand side. This is a good
trailhead, location N60.65506, E005.81060, elevation 55 meter.
Walk back to where you turned left, go straight and follow the nice dirt
road as it climbs gently with the fjord down on your right hand side.
Continue until the road makes a sharp bend left. There is a flag pole
on the right hand side. A small, but clear trail runs directly left
and ascends some smooth rock. Follow this trail as it makes a small descent
then finds its way along a narrow shelf. You now have the fjord down
on your left. The trail is
marked by some unusual fabric tied to
the trees. Follow this trail all the way to the summit. Comments:
I returned to the trailhead after hiking Storanipo.
I next had a couple of job related phone calls, before heading out at
The hike was easy. The trail is likely fairly new as older reports do not
mention it. I arrived at the summit
at 1400. The face towards Straume is a vertical cliff, quite impressive and
providing a very nice view.
I took a few pictures before returning by the same route. I was back
down by the car around 1430.
