Trip report, Mar 13 2007

This Sunday, I had visited Mosaksla in the morning, and then attended a confirmation the rest of the day. All the cakes at the confirmation party gave me a slight touch of bad concience, and I decided to work them off in the evening.

Tilremshatten was just a few minutes drive away, and by 20:40PM, I was on my way upwards. The ridge was much longer than I expected it to be. In fact, I had expected to be on the top within 15 minutes, but after 15 minutes I was barely half-way.

I could see two other hikers high up on the ridge. Which was not very strange, as it was a very nice evening. All of the mud was a big minus, but it couldn't be helped. I passed the other hikers not too far from the top.

I reached point 315m 21:13PM, took some pictures, then moved over to point 316m. The time was now 21:21PM. Darkness is no concern in northern Norway this time of the year. I could be hiking all night, and why wasn't I?

Because of beer. I had a COLD six-pack back at the house, and it was highly deserved after the long drive (675Km) from Ålesund, a scary moose encounter, a long confirmation day and two new tops. All in 48 hours.

I chatted some with the other hikers before heading down 21:30PM. I was jogging light down the mountain and was back at the trailhead 21:52PM. The quest for new Helgeland tops continued the next day with Kjøsvikfjellet
