I did this hike with my friend Harald. We started at 0915 and made a nice loop trip visiting Kvitavasseggene, (1020) Storhogen, (1115) Sødalseggene, (1305) and, Storevassegga. (1410)
The two first peaks were virtually free of snow, while the two last peaks (both exceeding 1000m), required walking in fairly deep smow We were back down at the road by 1600 and after 4.5 kilometer, the car at 1650.
