How to get there:
The main issue is to find the trailhead (ie. the driving), not the hike. Turn left just after exiting the large Sotra bridge, curve left back under the bridge, then uphill through a tunnel. Higher up, make a left and curve your way to the highest possible place to drive. Park here, location N60:22.852 E005:08.868, elevation 116 meter.
Route description:
The small summit right next to the parking is quite high, but not high enough. Go left of this summit, descend to the meadow, then climb the Botlenipa. The entire hike is not more than 10 minutes.
I left my car about 1345 and made the summit at 1350. From here, I looked across to Grasmenipa, it seemed alost as high so I decided to hike over there later. I was back at the car by 1355. I then headed over to Grasmenipa and climbed it. My GPS indicated that it was lower. This is also confirmed by the map. Its location is N60:23.074 E005:08.718, elevation 123 meter.
This trip continued to Folleseåsen located on Askøy.
