Another view from Litjfjellet, showing the bottom of the valley Romsdalen with the river Rauma. On the opposite side of the valley resides Trolltindene and in their center, and on the left side of the picture center, is Trollveggen (the Troll Wall), the highest vertical cliff in Europe (more than 1000 m). The rock here is fragile and dangerous, as proved by the enormous scree below. During the last Ice Age the glacier removed all debris from the valley, so this scree is formed during the last ten thousand years or so. The low gap in the middle of the picture, on the right end of the vertical wall, is called Bruraskaret (the Bridal Gap). It has been used for BASE jumping into the valley, but the winds here are treacherous and there have been several accidents. The same winds and loose rock also make helicopter rescue operations risky, therefore BASE jumping has been prohibited on this site.
