Location: North 60.01904, East 005.78626 (GPS on the summit)
Climbed November 3. 2017
Difficulty: YDS class 1
How to get there:
The easiest access from Bergen, is to drive south to Halhjem then
catch the ferry to Våge on the island of Tysnes. From Våge,
drive east towards Gjermundshamn, cross the bridge to the mainland, then shortly
after you exit the tunnel, fork right onto Hwy. 49, signed for
Gjermundshamn. After the small village of Håvik, you cross a small
penisula noth of Ølveshovda, then the road turns north. Locate the
first small side road going left at location N59.99593, E005.78773. Turn left
here and continue along this small road. You pass a few houses, then the road
turns into a forest/farmer road. Ordinary cars may continue to a small hilltop
where a car can park on the left hand side at location
N60.00221, E005.78035, elevation about 50 meter.
Continue along the forest road. Keep left where the road forks.
There are red T-marks along the route. The forest road makes a sharp
left at location N60.01683, E005.78399, elevation about 210 meter. Leave the
road and ascend more steeply along a drainage (T-marked), then turn right
and follow the small trail to the base of the summit ridge. The ascent is
well marked and easy, finally follow the small,
but nice summit ridge
to the highest point. There is an iron bolt,
the summit register and a summit
sign is placed slightly beyond the highest rock.
I left work a bit early and caught the ferry to Tysnes with absolutely
no time to spare. Leaving at 1530,
I was on top in 30 minutes.
Very nice views from a low summit.
In particular, Ølveshovda that
I visited a year ago, looked fine from here. After 10 minutes, I returned back to my car
arriving there at 1635. My next goal this early evening was
