Troll Wall, Rock Fall. It was reported that the 1300-meter Troll Wall on the north face of Trollryggen (1742m) experienced a series of rockfalls beginning in September. The first came from high on the face in an area known as the Gray Wall; the fall strafed the lower sections of the Swedish, Spanish and Rimmon routes. All routes in the vicinity of the wall were seriously affected. A month later a far greater rockfall occurred down low on the wall between the Rimmon Route and the 1986 route Death to All. The fall registered 2.0 on the Richter Scale at recording stations in Norway and Sweden. (High Mountain Sports 197)
