  Rauddalshornet trail head by Leikongeidet.


From the junction between roads 61 and 654 on the island Gurskøya, approximately 18.7 km south on road 61 from the ferry port at Hareid:

- Drive 5.9 km south, in the direction of Larsnes, on road 61.

- Turn right onto a gravel road, signed by a blank sign, and drive 100 metres along this gravel road. Park anywhere close to the start of the path, signed for "Røddalshornet".

Follow the path 500 metres west, and then turn a little left (still on the same path) and follow it along the east ridge up to the summit cairn.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

I had planned five hikes this Saturday, but driving towards Gyrinakken together with Arnt he mentioned Rauddalshornet to me, which I hadn't included in my plans. Since I had done well time-wise on my first four hikes of the day, together with Arnt, I decided to include also this top before driving back to Myrvåg and complete the day's adventures by hiking Rambjøra.

Arnt told me that the primary factor of Rauddalshornet was exactly 100 metres according to the maps when he checked several years back, and based on new heights for some of the other mountains I had visited today I feared that more recent measurements might have shown Rauddalshornet to have a primary factor less than the magic 100 metres. Hence I was sceptical all the way home, and very happy when I found it was still a PF100 top.

The hike was easy enough, but it was starting to get quite windy by now, so yet again it was a short summit stop before heading back down and the drive towards Rambjøra.
