    Hell is here, as in the abode of the Devil, and the whole area is riddled with natural phenomena like this:

    It's deep, very deep, and lots of steep montainsides.
    Very fun place to be climb around. :smile:

    Perhaps it's a Norwegian thing..

    Looks cool, but I don't get the impression of the size from the pic neither.

    Edit: do the giants cook you if you fall in?
