How to get there:
This mountain is located far north and west in Hordaland. From Bergen, drive north on E-39, cross Romarheimen and continue past Masfjorden. Enter the uphill tunnel named Jernfjelltunnelen and leave E-39 shortly after you exit this tunnel. The sign says Duesund, turn off to the left and follow this road. After 4 kilometer you have a lake on your right and then you arrive at the first (main) signed intersection. Turn left here and continue about 500 meter. Locate a small road going left. This is near location N60.89644, E005.45914. Drive this road and find a turnout/parking on your left after about 150 meter. This is a good trailhead.
If climbing the nearby Heinakken as well, then this trailhead works well for both peaks.
Route description:
From the small turn-out/parking area, the trail heads directly uphill following a natural passage with grass. There are small sticks with red paint showing the way. Continue to follow the trail, fairly well marked, until you are pretty near the summit. Somehow, the trail does not really extend the final few meter. The summit is located on a pretty distinct, small ridge. It is marked by a small cairn. The location is N60.90294, E005.48175.
I did this peak directly after climbing Heinakken. The ascent took 35 minutes and the descent similar time. I had my car parked at the trailhead for Heinakken, but realized that a better common trailhead would be the one described above.
