Great hike with great views of Lysefjord, Preikestolen, Mosli Varden and the Forsand Brdige. This cache can be done in combination with Preikestolhytta, Preikestolen, and, if one is ambitious, Moslivarden. It is MICROCACHE in the backcountry. As such, though it was not meant to be particularly difficult to find, it was not meant to be particularly easy either. No whining please. After all, if all caches were equally easy, then what fun would it be!
The main point of the cache is to increase awarness of this summit, to which many visitors to Preikestolen are oblivious.
After Tjødnane on the way to Preikestolen take the Hill trail. After cresting the saddle find a trail to the right toward the summit of Neverdalsfjell (708 moh). Afterward one can descend to Preikestolen (604 moh).
BRING YOUR OWN WRITING UTENSIL.
This may be the cure for caching fever; the cache container is a child's medicine dropper bottle.

The terrain of the mountain area surrounding Lysefjorden is steep and rough. Be sure to wear appropriate shoes and do not try to walk alone.
Geology of Fjords
The seeds of a fjord are laid when a glacier cuts a U-shaped valley through abrasion of the surrounding bedrock by the sediment it carries. Many such valleys were formed during the recent ice ages. Glacial melting is also accompanied by a rebound in the earth's crust as the ice load is removed. In some cases this rebound may be faster than the sea level rise. Most fjords are, however, deeper than the adjacent sea; Sognefjord, Norway, reaches as much as 1,300 m (4,265 ft) below sea level. Fjords generally have a sill or rise at their mouth caused by the previous glacier's terminal moraine. These characteristics distinguish fjords from rias (e.g. the Bay of Kotor), which are drowned valleys flooded by the rising sea.
Fjords in Norway
Norway lies in a weak tectonical zone, so the rivers could easily dig themselves into the soft rock. During the 22 ice ages, which are known in scandinavia, Norway was completely covered by glaciers. The preformed riverbeds turned into U-formed valleys during the icy periods. Between the ice ages, the meltwater reformed the valley into V-valleys. Since there were 22 ice ages, the valleys were formed and reformed rather often so that there were plenty of deep fjords, which were still dry at this time. After the last ice age, the global warming caused a rise of the sealevel for about 90 m and the fjords were flooded.

Ga naar het plateau van de Preekstoel Rock en neem een foto van jezelf erop! (See example picture ) (Zie voorbeeld foto)
When you are at Preikestolen, you will see an alarming crack between the pulpit and the rocky wall. Wanneer u op Preekstoel Rock, zie je een alarmerend spleet tussen de preekstoel en de rotsachtige wand. Find out how broad this crack is and reconsider where you are standing. eMail this value to us. Ontdek hoe breed dit is crack en Recon pagina's waar u staat. EMail deze waarde voor ons.
Climb up the Kjerag-plateau and stand on the Kjeragbolten! Beklim de Kjerag-plateau en staan op de Kjerag Boltens! Also take a picture of you on top of the bolten. Ook een foto van jou op de top van de bout. (See example picture ) (Zie voorbeeld foto)
When you are standing in front of Kjeragbolten, take a guess how broad the area is on which you are able to stand on the rock. Than look on your GPS and tell us how many meters above sea level you are standing right now. Wanneer u staat tegenover Kjerag Boltens, neem een gok hoe breed het gebied is waarop u in staat bent om op de rots. Dan kijken op je GPS en ons vertellen hoeveel meter boven de zeespiegel u staat nu. Please eMail us both values. Gelieve eMail ons beide waarden.

Starte fra preikestol-hytta. følg skiltinga til Moslivarden. Terrenget går mye opp, og er ganske tungt. Turen tar ca 2timer i rolig turfart opp (huske ikkje heilt), men rundt den tia.
Gode fjellsko, med støtte i anklene. Det er ein merka sti, men greit med godt feste og støtte i anklene
You start from the preikestol hut and follow the signs to Moslivarden. The terrain is steep, and pretty tough. After roughly 2 hours you should be able to reach the top, with calm march up.
Use fairly good footwear wich has good support for anckles and grip since the surface could be slippery. The path is marked, but at certain points hard to see.

På en liten høyde, ovenfor preikestolhytta. [Norsk] Cachen ligger i begynnelsen av stien til Prekestolen som er en av norges største turistatraksjoner.
Selve hytta skal nå rives og bygges opp på nytt med enda bedre fasiliteter for turister og leirer. Like ved stedet cachen er gjemt, er det noen benker som du kan ta en hvil på hvis du ikke har tenkt å ta hele turen.
[English] On a hight, above the "preikestol" cabin.
The cache is on the beginning of the path to "preikestolen". Preikestolen is one of norways most famoues touristatractions.
There are some benches close to the cache were you can rest.

After a hike about 2 hours you can find it !
But the terrain is very difficult ! We, my daughter and me, hide this plasticbox in the near
of the Preikestolen. You must climb then and now you look
under a stone few meters beside the footpath.
