Location: North 60.61246, East 005.78534 GPS on the summit)
Climbed May 26. 2019
Difficulty: YDS class 2
How to get there:
From Bergen, drive E-16 towards Voss (Oslo). You will pass Dale,
the road then heads downhill to meet the fjord at Dalseid. (About 2.5
kilometer after Dale). Turn left onto Hwy. 569 here. Drive through 5 small
tunnels and locate a small parking area on the left hand side
of the road at location N60.62447, E005.82288, elevation about 25 meter.
Follow the forest road (rough, no driving) up the valley.
You will pass a nice resting area,
then cross the river
and traverse a bit right, before the road again heads uphill
staying in the same valley. When the road runs out, a trail
continues on the left side. This trail leads uphill to
a nice basin with a cabin.
From here, continue directly uphill
as you aim for a distinct gully that runs all the waay to the
horizon. There is a small cliff-band that may be easily
overcome a bit on the left side. Before the gully starts
(the terrain is pretty wide), cross right and ascend easy slopes
that gains the slope on your right hand side, ie. never enter
the gully itself. Turn left again as an easy slope reveals itself
leading towards the summit. Right below the summit, turn left to
avoid steeper terrain and climb the final,
easy slope to the summit. Comments:
I left my car at 1120 and arrived at the summit by 1320, 2 hours.
Very nice view in all directions. After about 15 minutes there, I descended
the same route and arrived back down at my car in one hour.
I decided to visit Beitelen on my way home.
