Haugavarden hike, 01.01.04

This hike started from the Sedalen trailhead 13:05PM. I followed the mountain service to road end and took a direct route up the Vasslifjellet east ridge towards the Gimle cabin. Then took a direct course towards Haugavarden and passed just south of Turnerhytten. I reached Haugavarden summit 14:45PM. The snow was insignificant, but the wind was very strong and cold. This was the first time I had to put clothing on the dog in the backpack. I was running out of daylight, and took the same route back to Sedalen. Due to an exceptional quick descent from Vasslifjellet, I reached the trailhead 15:30PM.
