Location: North 62:24.798, East 006:09.926 (GPS at the summit)
Near Ålesund, Norway
Difficulty: YDS class 1
Climbed May 25. 2006.
How to get there:
From Ålesund, take E-39 towards Bergen and then Hwy. 61 towards
Hareid. Measure 5.4 kilometer from the Stranda exit on your way from
Ålesund, leave Hwy. 61 and turn right towards Langevågen.
You pass Mauseidvåg and Fiskarstrand, then 8.6 kilometer after
leaving Hwy. 61, turn left onto the Molværsbrautet road (this is
just after a SPAR grocery store). This road has a pretty immediate
fork on either side of a house, pick the right side and continue uphill
for about 800 meter to a parking area. This is the trailhead, elevation
84 m, location N62:25.888 E006:10.919. Route description:
Locate a bridge that takes you across the creek.
The (wide) trail heads straight uphill following a (mostly buried) pipeline that runs down
the slope from a reservoir higher up. Eventually, the trail bends right, passing the
small reservoir and some huts before reaching the crest of the mountain. From here, more
left and slightly steeper up to a big cairn on top of the slope. From this cairn, follow
the top ridge a bit further, then up a small final slope to the summit. Comments:
I did this hike in the evening with my friend Arnt. We started at 1940 and arrived at the
summit at 20:50, about one hour and 10 minutes. The return hike explored a forest road,
we were back at the car around 21:00.
