Ascent Trip Report

I'm sure that this is a very nice peak in good weather, but our trip occurred when the summit was quite socked in, the winds were high, and it was pelting rain. The simplest route is up from Turtagrø, following signs to Fanaråkenhytta and red T's painted on the rocks. This route starts by going upvalley on a closed road, then turns off the road onto a trail which continues to the summit. Sometimes, the scree makes this trail difficult to find.
