Awaiting a proper Pilen page....
Pilen (103m) is a small hump located on Hessa island, a close neighbour of Sukkertoppen. People seem to go AROUND it, and not ON it.
I had been curious about Pilen since I'd started visiting the west side of Sukkertoppen. The northwest ridge looked steep and a bit unfriendly. After a nice afternoon hike to Storhornet, I stopped by Hessa to try out this ridge.
It was a steep, short scramble. Most of the upper terrain "psyched me out", but I found a small gully that provided some sort of safety in the terrain. Once on top, I didn't see any traces of a frequently visited top. No cairn and no path. The east side is quite gentle, but as already stated, people seem to go AROUND this top.
