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.
Route description:
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.
