How to get there:
Drive E-39 north from Bergen. Continue north and through the long Eikefet tunnel. After this tunnel, then 6 more short tunnels. Look for a small, nice parking area on your right hand side about 1.4 kilometer after the last tunnel. This is the trailhead, location N60.73155, E005.63339, elevation about 15 meter.
Route description:
Cross the road and locate a small trail that heads up the little valley. Follow this partway up, then turn more left and do a gradual ascent where you aim for a point east and below the summit. The south side is steep and the summit must be approached from the east side. The summit does not have any visible marker.
I had been on the lower neigbor, Almeskila and traversed directly across. Ascending more to my right hand side, I turned the steeper south side and arrived at the summit from the east side. It took me about one hour to cross between the two summits. Good views, after about 10 minutes I returned back down, this time aiming for the lower part of the initial, small valley. The descent took 40 minutes.
