How to get there:
This peak is most impressive when seen from Gjendebu. Gjendebu is also the most natural starting point.
Route description:
Follow the first part of the trail from Gjendebu that runs through Svartdalen to Torfinnsbu. As you approach 1400 meter, the uphill becomes more gentle. Look for a trail that forks right, it is marked with cairns, but is smaller than the main trail you have been on. Follow this trail (marked with cairns all the way) to the summit.
I climbed this peak on my way from Bygdin to Gjende. It was the last peak on a fine ridge traverse starting with Mesmogtinden and Langedalstinden. More info under Mesmogtinden.
