How to get there:
Drive E-39 north from Bergen. When you arrive in Romarheim, locate the road fork where Hwy. 569 goes right to Modalen. Continue 2 kilometer further north on E-39. Locate a small fork signed for Stusdalen going left. Take this road. You will arrive at the first house on your right. You need to pay toll in order to continue this road. NOK 50 (in 2022), cash or by Vipps. Continue to the next house, the correct road is to turn left at the second fork, ie. you drive on the right hand side of the house below you.
Continue on this very nice dirt road in the valley, then uphill to a large parking area at location N60.76155, E005.57785, elevation about 350 meter.
Route description:
Continue along the road and across the small wooden bridge. Follow the (new) forest road a few hundred meter, then take the (new) exit (ramp) to access the old trail that climbs to a local saddle above. There is a trail fork here. Do not descend, but locate the trail that climbs north. This trail will turn more west higher up. Follow it until you are near the west end of a small lake (on the north side of the trail), elevation 551m.
Leave the trail here and head uphill. Keep pretty much straight north, just west of point 736m, passing the small lake nearby on the west side. Enter the main gully/small valley that separates the peak from your route, high enough thatno descent is needed. Continue the short final stretch to the summit.
We had our good friends Ellen and Sverre (from Colorado) visiting. We had been running both Stoltzen and the Ulriken stairs, today was a good day for exploring a bit of Hordaland north of Bergen. We started from the car around 1155 and had a nice walk on mostly dry ground/trail, arriving at the top after 1:45. A break there, before returning in 1:35. We drove home via Modalen and Dale, to show our visitors classical, narrow west coast roads and a nice fjord landscaape.
Thanks for a very nice hike and a memorable visit!
