Bruce Kay - right, there is some really tall and impressive ice in Norway. In Feb 2005, Scott Johnston, Erik Sandelin, Björn Kihlstrom, and I climbed the 1st 4 pitches of a waterfall near what was later named Fossilmonster. There was much more above us. We went back in 2006, but the lower pitches were missing. In 2009, Robert Jasper and partners finished it, naming it Into the Wild and also did the FA of the Fossilmonster (link below).

Bruce Kay - For some perspective on the length of Fossilmonster, Robert Jasper puts it at about 100m less than that of Into the Wild. The 1st 4 pitches of Into the Wild is the bit of ice in this picture rising above the end of the safety guardrail along the right side of the road:

Isn't it Fosslimonster?
I don't speak Norske but I think Fossli means something totally different that Fossil.
