A rock in the outlet of the upper Innerdalen lake. For more than ten thousand years, since the last Ice Age, Skarfjellet in the background has shed rocks. The end of the scree (= "sloping mass of débris at the base of a cliff") seems to run from here and along the far side of the lower Innerdalen lake. When partly covered with vegetation such screes make an interesting landscape, but unfortunately they're not easily accessible.

The outlet from the lower lake seems to run through the scree, therefore the water level varies strongly with the flow into the lake.
