Rockman Begins is the story of how Rockman came to birth and where he grew up. The great passion for rocks was a fortune as his home is purely a pile of rocks. Rockman Begins will demonstrate the playground of Rockman and take the athletes on an adventure of narrow, icecold fjord swims and majestic views.
Rockman Begins starts with a narrow fjord swim from Fantahålå to the shore where the climb to Revsvatnet where Rockman loved to swim. From Preikestolen mountain lodge continues the journey to the first rock of the test, Preikestolen, where the athletes will turn around and run a rocky climb back down into the fjord. At these shores, the soon to be born Rockmen will perform a swim leg along the fjord before running along a nice path and cutting down to the fjord again. The longest swim leg continues for 1.7 km across the fjord. The ascent from the cold fjord waters doesn’t give hope for rest when the Rockmen needs to continue the journey with 4444 steps to the sky (750 m in 1 km). It doesn't stop here, because the high mountain platau needs to be reached. Rockman went here to get a view reaching all the way home.
Now the way down starts around Troppekosknuten that brings out cold final swims and green and open landscapes. The trip down is tough, but a proper Rockman does not give up before reaching Flørli.
