We had a really amazing trip to Lofoten last summer, including a mini-epic on Stetind. Happy to spray some more beta if you're looking for it. Wonderful country and great climbing, highly recommend it.

Marlow, what is the etymology of ‘Reine’? You didn’t borrow it from the French, I’m pretty
sure it isn’t the sister city of Reineh, Israel, so I’m going with it’s old norsk for rene, as in
cleaning fish?

Reilly.

Give me context/examples where reine is used.

In my dialect "reine hender" as example is "clean hands".

It could also be used for "pure" as in "reine galskapen" (pure madness)

Reine, Lofoten, which is why I assumed it was about clean or cleaning fish. 🤓

Reine i Lofoten

Here's what I found: Navnet kommer av rein, 'gresskant, bakke', ved kysten: 'land sett fra sjøen'. (The name comes from "rein", 'grass edge, hill', by the coast: 'land seen from the sea')

My interpretation: "Rein" in village "Reine" is "land seen from the sea", something growing up from the ocean when seen from afar...

From Old High German reini, from Proto-Germanic *hrainiz, from Proto-Indo-European *króy-n-is, from *krey- (“divide, sift”). Cognate with Old Saxon hreni, (Low German ren), Dutch rein, Old Norse hreinn (Swedish ren), Ancient Greek κρῑ́νω (krī́nō, “separate, decide, judge”) Old Irish criathar, English riddle (“sieve”).

Something dividing land from sea.

A riddle... :o)

Reine is making a difference.

For anyone who read Norwegian:

Buy the last two numbers of the Norwegian climbing magazin "Klatring", number 150 and 151.

In 151 you get the story of Ralph Høibakk solo climbing Stetind at the age of 81! You also get stories by Dag Kolsrud - the first ascent of Trango tower among them and the story of Dag and Hank Levine climbing Hollenderan in Northern Norway shocking the locals and getting their chalk bags confiscated.

In 150 you get stories by Ulf Geir Hansen who dominated Norwegian climbing for many years and did hard ascents in the Alps and Verdon.

Ralph has written the article himself. The DK and UGH articles written by Leif Håvard Kvande. All the articles very well written...
