Location: North 60.22310, East 005.83236 (GPS at the summit)
Climbed August 27, 2016
Difficulty: YDS class 2
How to get there:
From Bergen, drive to Trengereid, then take Hwy. 7, after the long tunnel in
Samanger, go right in the traffic circle onto Hwy. 48. Drive past Eikelandsosen.
At the intersection in Holdhus, measure and go 1.1 kilometer further. Just before
the road starts downhill, turn right onto the beginning of a tractor road. There is
parking for one car here. This location is N60.22937, E005.84420, elevation about
Follow the tractor road along the
edge of the field, then uphill. Continue uphill
on small trains among big trees. Gradually bear left and follow small trails until
you hit a meadow. From here, continue uphill along meadows until you spot the distinct
hilltop that holds the highest point. The summit is near some trees, however you do
have a view across towards Rødsfjellet.
I started at 1220 and picked a route that ran into steepish terrain, I should
have kept more right in the beginning. Higher up, nice meadows and small
pine trees. I got to the summit at 1255 and stayed for about 10 minutes.
My descent kept more left (going down) and I avoided the steeper section.
Back at my car by 1340.
I decided that I should climb Russåsen also before returning to Bergen.
