Kolåstinden: Normal route from Standalhytta

From Standalhytta (accessible for overnight stay) go north into Kvanndalen. From here you can either go directly up the north-east side across the glacier, or for a longer more varied and easier climb continue around the ridge. Take west and travers up the steep north facing side up to Stretet, a narrow passage through the ridge to the glaciated inner bowl. Travers the bowl on the upper part of the glacier and climb the last steep slope to the summit. The last 50 meters is quite steep and done on foot. Ice axe or crampons might be useful here.
