Up and Down

The magnificent west facing slabby wall that looks out over the Bunesstrand and out into the Norwegian Sea. Approach from Reine by taking a boat to Vinstad at the entrance to Bunesfjorden. Walk alongside the fjord on a gravel road for 2 km towards the low pass of Einangen. Go past the beautiful Vinstad graveyard, then northwest up sheep trails to the pass (80m), before descending to the enormous Bunesstrand, the beach, below Helvetstinden's West Face - 1 to 1.5 hours from the ferry.
