I went for a cool trip on mount Sulafjellet along with my son Dag this afternoon. We started out from the parking place by the lake Mausavatnet as we've done on previous occasions, and walked past the well known mountain cabin Rollonhytta up to the mountain peak commonly reffered to as Vardane (776 meters above main sea level), though the real name is actually Tverrfjellet or just Sulafjellet from Sula, the name of the island on which the mountain is located [fjell = mountain]. We thereafter descended from Vardane as we headed towards another peak, Grøthornet, located 650 mamsl. From Grøthornet we descended quite a bit towards the village Langevåg, until we found a rather steep track that could take us up to the mountain peak called Svanshornet (552 mamsl). From Svanshornet we followed another track down to the village Mauseidvåg, from where we walked an old gravel road back to our car.
