This is a classic, easy ski ascent. The tracks are visible on the right hand side of the picture.

A brief route description: Start from Håkøybotn and walk up to the telecommunication cottage (670) situated on the East ridge (marked with a red square). From here continue along the ridge to the summit. The summit of Stålhovet can be easily reached from Lille Blåmannen. It is less than a kilometer away.
The route is marked on the Kvaløya map.
