How to get there: This mountain is the highest point near the main highway 50 that crosses from Aurland on the Sognefjord to Hol in Hallingdal, eastern Norway. The highway passes through the tunnel, Geiteryggstunnelen.
Route description: This mountain is easily climbed from the highway 50 just west of the Geiteryggen tunnel. There are many variants, one can hike pretty much anywhere in this area.
Comments: I did this hike with my son Pål Jørgen, 8 years old. There is a radio link antenna as well as a locked hut (belonging to the phone company) at the summit.
We were driving from Bergen to Lillehammer when we found the tunnel closed for two hours on the very top of the highway crossing from west to east in Norway. What better than climbing the mountain above the tunnel entrance while waiting for it to reopen.
