About Svolvaergeita:

An amazing tower of rock perched on the hillside behind the areas main town, with the two giant blocks of 'the horns' balanced on its crest. The first ascent of The Goat in 1910 was a seminal point in the history of Norwegian climbing, in a two week period the same team made the first ascent of Stetind on the Mainland (after sailing up the fjord to reach it!), as well as Trakta, and Store Klokktinden on Lofoten. It is 'traditional' to jump the gap between the horns, though fortunately this isn't actually compulsory!
