Location: North 63:10.769, East 008:15.966 (GPS at the summit)
Difficulty: YDS class 2.
Climbed August 27. 2006.
How to get there:
See the description for Inderbergsalen, as these
two summits share the same access and trailhead.
Ascend from the road to the saddle that separates Storøra from Inderbergsalen.
This is best done by following the road down the last hill towards Fjellnesdalen farm, cross
the creek and turn sharply uphill (left). Locate the farm fields above and follow (along the edge)
this somewhat larger field to its highest end. There, you will find a good trail that leads up
to the saddle connecting Inderbergsalen with Storøra.
This saddle has location N63:10.190, E008:14.324, elevation 241 meter. From here, follow a trail that ascends
the ridge. Higher up, this trail bypasses the small knoll and becomes harder to follow.
Just continue up the slope that connects with the ridge just south of the summit. Comments:
I did this climb with my friend Arnt Flatmo.
We left our "base camp" (at the small farmers field) around 1210, and reached the summit
in about 1.5 hours. We stayed at the summit a bit more than 30 minutes and talked to two other
parties, a lady arriving from the north and father/son arriving from Fjellnesdalen.
The descent took about 1:15. We broke camp and headed back towards Kristiansund, first negotiating
the rough road with Arnt's small, but quite robust car. We made the 1700 ferry with time to spare and
I thanked Arnt for good company before locating a restaurant in the center of Kristiansund. Arnt headed
east and south in order to get back to Ålesund.
This was our fourth and final "Stabb". I unexpectedly ended up doing a final
evening hike to Freikollen.
