Translation: The giant and the witch. The giant (Risin) is a 71 meter (233 foot) tall stack further from the coast, and the witch (Kellingin) is the 68 meter (223 foot) stack nearest the coast. Given the heights of these stacks, one can get a better idea of just how tall the cliffs of Eysturoy stand.
