Location: North 60.33048, East 006.13167 (GPS at the summit)
Climbed June 16. 2018
Difficulty: YDS class 1
How to get there:
Drive Hwy. 7 to Norheimsund, turn right (south) on Hwy. 49.
Drive slightly more than 1.3 kilometer, then fork right on a
road that con tinues almost parallel with the main road, but
climbs the hillside. You will enter a small plateau where a forest
road forks right. There is a self serve toll booth as well.
Pay toll (NOK 50 in 2018), then continue up this road, take the
left fork shortly after the beginning. As you gain a new plateau
(having passed through a gate), there are signs here. You should
continue towards Stuvastølen, that is straight ahead.
You will pass a second gate and arrive at a local high with
parking available. (This location is N60.33817, E006.15790, elevation 360 meter.)
I parked here, however the best approach is
to continue downhill, then drive until the end of the road just
From the end of the road, there is a trail steeply uphill to
Stuvastølen, location N60.33435, E006.15316, elevation 440 meter.
From here, a clearly defined trail (marked with cairns) leads up to
It starts out slightly right when facing uphill at
I stopped at the local high point and started uphill at 1630.
A bit of steepish off-trail hiking before I ran into the trail
higher up. I arrived at the summit at 1715. The terrain up
here is very nice, obviously also good for skiing in the winter.
I left already at 1720, since dinner was also on the agenda back in Bergen.
I followed the trail back to Stuvastølen, then a smaller trail
along the top of the cliffs that descended nicely directly back to my car.
Back at 1800, I drove quickly back to Bergen after a very nice day
of hiking. I had now completed all 52 peaks with prominance at least 100 meter
south of Hwy. 7.
