Crag features
Preikestolen (a.k.a. Pulpit Rock) is the most popular hike in the Stavanger area. Scenes of gawking tourists sunning on the table-flat top of this overhanging granite prow grace many postcards. Preikestolen rises over 600 m above scenic Lysefjord, a 40 km+ long classic Norwegian fjord. Views of Lysefjord from Preikestolen's summit are panoramic.

Approach notes
The standard route, a trail, climbs roughly 400 m over 3.8 km from the parking lot at Preikestolhytta. Aside from some minor route ambiguities, the path is obvious and well-marked, although quite rocky and muddy in spots. A couple alpine lakes at 2.5 km tempt swimmers on warm days. The views are scenic, but quite ordinary until just before Preikestolen. From Preikestolen, scramblers will enjoy the 100 m class 3 jaunt to the summit of Neverdalsfjellet, which boasts 360° views of Lysefjord and the island-studded bays toward Stavanger.
