Stoltzekleiven – Munkebotn
From Fjellveien i Sandviken, a well prepared but rather steep row of stairs takes you all the way up to Sandviksfjellet, with a very nice view of the fjord and the town. At this point, you are 313,5 meters above the starting point in Fjellveien. The recommended path down from the top is not via the stairs, but rather via Munkebotn (turn left on the top) or Skredderdalen (turn right).
