"Vestiges of the Ice Age"

High above the placid waters of the Lysefjord, a giant cliff rises at a height of 604 meters (1981.62 feet), and flattens off into a plateau. The Pulpit Rock is one of Ryfylke most striking natural attractions, and is distinctively representative of Norway's timeless landscape. Formed nearly tens of thousands of years ago during the Ice Age, the rock was the terminus of a massive glacier. When water trickled from the glacier into the crevices of the mountain, it froze and eventually broke off into large blocks. These blocks were ferried by the glacier to unknown depths, leaving in its wake an angular-shaped table-top of the now-renown Pulpit Rock. The rock lay largely undiscovered for several millennia, until athlete Thomas Randulf first set eyes on it while charting the waters of the North Sea in 1900. The rock invites sizable groups of hikers and mountaineers who scale the challenging terrain of the rock to be awarded with sweeping views of the Lysefjord.
