Recommended advice
Few places have as harsh a climate as the area around Kvannto, and the map name Verhardo (harsh climate) seems appropriate.

Overview
There is an easy incline from the parking lot to the end of the forest road where the terrain flattens at approx. 600m AMSL. From here there are signs and T marking towards the south, first with a slight incline and then steeper up the ridge to the top where there is a cairn at Kvannto. There is a beautiful view of the mountains and Sunnhordland.
