Location: North 60.62711 East 005.29343 (GPS at the summit)
Climbed April 26, 2015
Difficulty YDS class 2
How to get there:
Drive Hwy. 57 north from Knarvik (signs for Mongstad). After
passing through a few tunnels, the road emerges at the east
side of lake Storavatn. You will now see the sharp hill forward
on your right hand side. Shortly, there is a small road forking
right, closed with a gate. Park here, location N60.62587, E005.28998,
elevation about 50 meter.
The best route is likely to follow the road going south, all the
way to the natural end of the main ridge. From here, a trail should
take you all the way up along the ridge to the summit. Note that the
first local summit is lower, after a small descent, the ridge again
climbs to the highest point.
There are no summit marker or cairn.
I parked at the trailhead and without knowledge about the trail, headed
directly up the steep slope. This got me into (YDS) class 3 terrain, quite
steepish and fortunately, I did find a sort of ramp that got me out of
what looked like a dead end gully. I arrived directly to the south (lower)
summit hump, then followed the very good trail left in order to gain the
highest point. The ascent took 20 minutes, but the route cannot be recommended,
too steep and involving scrambling. On my return, I followed the trail south,
but eventually descended a bit more right down a drainage that connected
down to an old overgrown road. Following this right, brought me directly
back to my car.
