Shivling Attempt. During the summer of 1987, a Norwegian team composed of Jan Westerby, Thornbjørn Envold, Magnar Osnes and Aril Meyer hoped to climb the north buttress of Shivling. Unstable weather hindered progress. Some 500 meters below the summit they got stopped where the ridge is of steep and difficult rock. Climbing difficulties, lack of equipment and illness of one of the members forced them to retreat.
