To the main Sollia page (maps, route descriptions, other trip reports, etc.)

This weekend, I was babysitting Odin, and I decided to give him enough exercise to last for the whole week. On Friday, we went up Blåtind (697m). On Saturday, we visited Melshornet (807m) in Ørsta/Volda and Leinehornet (366m) on Leinøya. And after a roundtrip across Brandtua (440m), Syrebakkane (455m), Hestefjellet (621m) and Selsteinen (598m), we went up Varden (333m) on Runde. On Sunday evening, I returned Odin to his owner with a good conscience. And according to him, the next day Odin had a rough morning - trying to get up...

This 9km trip across these 4 tops took 2h:40m. We started from the Moldtudalen trailhead, followed the mountain road to Mørkevatnet for 1,2km, then turned right onto a path leading up to Brandtua (crossing the river on a bridge). We continued along a path to Syrebakkane (Litledalshornet), then descended off-trail into Litledalen and walked/scrambled up Hestefjellet's west ridge (off-trail). From here, we proceeded along the high route to Selsteinen and followed a path down to Moldtudalen.
