There is a parking lot with an information board by the road. The route is clearly waymarked all the way to the top at intervals sufficiently short so you can see from one waymark to the next. Follow the tractor road up to a small fenced field. Keep to the right by the river. On the left side of the river you will see the trail. Follow this until you get to Hengenipa (506 meters above sea level). Enjoy the view over the Førdefjord.The trail continues to a cabin called Nipebu. From now on the route is in the direction of Rørviksnipa. When you reach the foot of the top, make a right turn and follow the foot until you get to the lake «Nipevatnet». Some parts of the trail are marked with stones. From this point you can see the top of Blegja. Continue on the left side of the lake, and further up the side of the mountain. Then cross a stone scree in the direction between the edge of Rørviknipa and the Blegja plateau. Easy climbing the last meters towards the top. About 150 meters ahead you will find the cairn. Enjoy the most spectacular view overlooking Alden, Jostedalsbreen and the seven mountains surrounding Bergen.
