The starting point for this route description is the Haukelifjell. Locate the Haukeliseter tunnel by Ulevåvatnet. At the eastern tunnel entrance, follow the old road (N59.84953 E7.08656) to the west for 3,1km. You're now on the top of the valley between Dyrskarnuten (north) and Sveigen (south) Find parking alongside the road (N59.83980 E7.04275).
Cross the road and head towards some steep cliffs, then pass them on the right (south) side and zig-zag up a grassy slope. Maintain a southeast direction. The terrain is rocky (with lots of interesting details), but quite easy. After a little while, you see the summit ridge ahead of you. Ascend from the southwest side and expect to pass some loose rocks before reaching the summit point (N59.83099 E7.07707) - marked by a proper cairn.
