How to get there:
A good starting point is the full serve DNT tourist hut, Haukelisæter, 986 meter, located at Hwy. E-134, location N59:49.439, E007:11.605. This hut is about 4 hours drive from Bergen.
Route description:
Ski south (across the lake) from Haukelisæter. Follow the marked route for about 4 kilometer, then ski right (west) up the small valley Lisledalen, just south of the Kistenuten mountain. Ski as far as to the end of the small lake at elevation 1151. Turn left (south) and follow the best and very natural route up to the main ridge running east from Vassdalseggi. Finally, follow this ridge uphill to point 1632. From here, the route continues almost flat for about 1.5 kilometer to the highest summit marked with a large cairn.
This mountain is the highest point in Rogaland.
I did this trip with Stig Anton from the Bergen Mountaineering group. We started at Haukeliseter at 0910 and made the summit at 1140, so about 2.5 hours. An additional 4 participants from the national mountaineering meeting came along, two girls. One of them, Siv Vassdal, had a special motivation for climbing this peak.
The skiing back down was nice and quick, arriving back at Haukelisæter at 1310.
I subsequently drove back to Bergen after a very nice weekend with DNT Fjellsport at Haukelisæter.
