How to get there:
The best access is from Hwy. E-134 across Haukelifjell. From the DNT hut Haukeliseter, drive about 6 kilometer west and find parking where you have direct access to the mountains on your right hand (north) side. A good location is N59.84950, E007.12597, elevation about 980 meter.
Route description:
Head directly north up the fairly steep slope that separates Store Nup (left) from the subsidiary summit 1599 m, on the right. When you gain the saddle, turn left and proceed across fairly easy terrain to the summit.
I did this climb with Arild and Lars. They shared a ride with me to a mountaineering meeting at Haukeliseter. We left Bergen early in order to have time for a good hike before dinner. We left the car around 1220 and arrived at the summit after 1.5 hours. Unfortunately, a local cloud had settled on the top when we were there. The return required 1:20. Thanks to Lars and Arild for good company.
