Slide 1: Preikestolen “The Rock Pulpit” Translated from the original Italian by Cassius Carter Slide 2: Near Stavanger in Norway there is a mysterious rock that rises 600 meters above the fjord Lysefjorden and to get there is not a climber's dream! The Preikestolen (literally “Rock Pulpit” is perhaps the most famous attraction in Stravanger. Once you've arrived at the parking lot at an elevation of about 270 meters, you're at the beginning of the trail that leads to the summit of the rock terrace from which in a little less than two hours and another 600 meters you will get to the peak of the fjord. To say that you'll enjoy a breath taking view is a no brainer! However be sure you are properly equipped to go on even though the trail is well tracked, good trekking shoes are strongly advised. You have to be in good physical condition! Slide 4: The map that shows the route and the altitude of Preikestolen shown on the marker. Slide 5: Beginning of the climb Slide 6: Wooden path to get over the sodden surface Slide 7: The trail goes on Slide 8: From here on the climb gets hard Slide 9: You have to climb up stretches full of rocks Slide 10: Here you stop to rest a little and take pix Slide 11: A little refreshment from the trickling stream Slide 12: A little more dangerous going crossing a suspended bridge Slide 13: Almost there Slide 14: And here we are finally! Slide 15: From here the pictures don't need any commentary. But if you suffer from vertigo' I would advise you not to look down! Slide 18: Grandpa not affected! Slide 32: The big fissure that splits the rock down to the sea Slide 35: In the vicinity of Preikestolen there are so many beautiful places worth seeing but one stands out above all the others and it is “THE MORTISED BOULDER” Slide 40: The End
