Ascent Trip ReportRoute as per Petter Bjørstad's website. He suggested this as a good option for a travel day.
After early flight into Oslo we make the three hour drive to the trailhead and climb the peak early pm.
Parking in the pull-in near the end of unpaved toll road (N61.70973 E9.47079, 920m) we climb straight up through scrubby woodland: nice range of wildflowers. Above trees easy vegetation with fine views opening up. Easy broad ridge leads via the slightly lower south summit (N61.73092 E9.45443, metal rod in outcrop presumably a triangulation station) to main summit with fine tall cairn (N61.73147 E9.45354, 1370m).
Returning to the car we continue our journey northwest to Juvashytte, planning to climb Galdhøpiggen tomorrow.
