Bruraskaret ('The Bride Pass') in Trolltindene was used for BASE-jumping into the valley Romsdalen, but this is now prohibited due to unpredictable winds, several accidents and very dangerous rescue operations. (Written on the rock: "800 m until impact") Brura ('The Bride') is the tiny needle peak in the center of the image. At the end of the nineteen forties  most of her   most of her   most of her  fell into Romsdalen. The rock on this part of the ridge looks and feels extremely fragile and the ridge is continuously 'sharpened' by erosion. On the ridge are needle peaks of all sizes, some even less than a man's height, and on the top of each one lies a slab of hard rock, evidently a prerequisite for their formation and existence.
