My friend Petter was on a short visit before going to Alaska and Mt. Mc Kinley. On the public holiday May 25th, Petter was attending a conference in Ålesund while I was hiking Blåskjerdingen. I picked him up in the evening and then we headed to Sulafjellet. Sulafjellet was on Petter's list of prominent Møre og Romsdal mountains, and I was happy to be the local "guide" on this trip. Actually, Petter refers to this mountain as Tverrfjellet on his site.
We left the Langevågen trailhead 19:40PM and kept a fair pace up the mountain. We arrived the cold and windy summit 21:00PM. Fog was sweeping across the summit plateau, and a spectactular light dominated the horizon. I had gained 1750 vertical meters during the day, but still didn't feel any fatigue in the muscles. I would have no problems going yet another 1000m upwards, which is nice to know if I ever get in a situation where I have to do just that.
Beautiful evening colors painted the mountain as we headed down. When we reached the traversing forest road, we headed down the eastern part, the part I didn't walk on my visit 4 days earlier. We were back at the trailhead 22:00PM. I can only speak for myself, but I had certainly earned beer.
