Ascent Trip ReportA wonderful little peak with splendid views - in particular for such little effort. Had some issues finding the beginning of the trail even though in hindsight it is easy, i.e. precisely opposite to the city of Måløy, at the East side of the Ulvesundet, when the road reaches its westernmost point. Difficult to see as the sign for Hanekammen is a few meters above the level of the road.
Anyway, from here on it is straightforward. Initially a little awkward through some low trees and brush the trail quickly runs over meadows, offering very soon excellent views to the Atlantic and the neigbouring islands and mountains. From here it only gets better and better. The summit itself holds a nice cairn. Just perfect views in perfect conditions - glad I made the car ride to the coast this day. Highly recommended little trip!
