Description

Molladalen is encircled by the spectacular Molladalstindane with well-known peaks such as Jønshorn, Randers Topp and Mohns Topp. By the glacier behind Mohns Topp lies the popular climbing objective Bladet. The area offers a comprehensive range of experiences, with everything from climbing on steep faces to tarn fishing and walks. Molladalen is also the family-friendly alternative. The shortest way to Molladalen is from Melbøsætra/Barstadsætra (marked path). From Molladalen you can go further on marked paths to Ytre Standal. At Standalseidet you find Standalhytta (cabin at 1,299 ft), suitable as a starting point for a summit tour to Kolåstinden (4,698 ft).

Season May-Oct. Duration Approx. 2.5 hours to Molladalen - longer for day tours to the summits. Distance and total height gain: 3 km. 1,870 ft. Access Bus www.fjord1.no or car to Barstadvik, where you turn off and follow the road along Barstaddalen (toll roads) up to the car park at Melbøsætra/Barstadsætra.

Worth noting There is a chain at the steepest point along Molladalselva. The area may be dangerous when conditions are icy. If you decide to go up into any of the gullies it is important to wear a helmet, especially if there are several people on the tour.
