Norway Adventure

Kjerag Mountain - June 2015
I was in Norway, giving a presentation to the United Nations Environmental Emergencies Forum in Oslo and had a few days after the conference to do some exploring in the mountains and fjords of this amazing country. My good friend, Nik Halik met up with me in Oslo, and we hit the road, with the hopes of making it to Kjeragbolten, a rock, wedged into a gap, almost a kilometer above the fjord below.
 
More about Kjeragbolten.

Kjeragbolten. Standing on this boulder was as scary as it looks. The winter snow had not yet melted, making the approach very icy and slippery.
The winds were strong and gusty, making it even more precarious. I had to lean into the wind, just to stand up straight... But the view was amazing!
The road to Kjerag Mountain. They had a LOT of snow this past winter, and much of it was still on the ground at higher elevations. The road was more like a trench.

After about a 3 1.2 hour hike, we made it to the top of Kjerag Mountain.

Understandably, this is a very popular spot for B.A.S.E. jumpers.

Sheer cliffs, snow-capped mountains, what's not to love. Just don't get too close to the edge.
It was a tough hike, but totally worth the effort. If you go to Norway, you must check this place out.
