"Hyllene" (The shelves/ledges)
is a disctinct "balcony" in Sukkertoppen's north face. When I first took my colleague Trond up Trollråsa (Apr 13 2007), we talked briefly about the possibility of getting up that way. Trond believed he had heard about someone going up here a long time ago, but he wasn't quite sure. The day after, I gave this route a try, only to chicken out at the steepest part. A month later, Olav and I went up this route and used a rope to be on the safe side. When I mentioned this to Trond, he wanted to come along on a hike. Being from Skarbøvika, Trond had been looking at this steep face all of his life - wondering ...
Gathering in Trollråsa
We descended Trollråsa. Down by the mailbox, we met Kenneth - a frequent Trollråsa visitor. Then came Olav and then Virginia and Terje followed. A small gathering! Trond hadn't descended Trollråsa earlier, so that was another first.
All in all an excellent round trip. Trond can now look at the "Hyllene" route from his window and say; been there, done that.
