She said Yes! Man proposes to girlfriend atop 3000ft high boulder wedged between two cliffs in Kjeragbolten, Norway
Going down on one knee and popping the question to the love of your life. You want to do it right to perfection, and so much could go wrong. Especially if you're 3000 feet up from the ground. And as daunting as the extreme-sport level gesture might sound, Britain's Kristian Richards had no trouble accomplishing the task with flying colors!
The 33-year-old man took his girlfriend Bex Morley all the way to Kjeragbolten, Norway, where he popped the question standing 3,000ft up on a boulder wedged dangerously between two cliffs.
The man from Isle of Sheppey in Kent might have just earned himself a record-holding title after he popped the question to Morley in one of the most dramatic ways. Speaking to The Sun about the incredible feat, Richards said: "Most people are terrified their girlfriend might say no — but I had other things to worry about. I was worried I'd drop the ring. If it went, we weren't getting it back."
Luckily for Richards, Morley said yes right away, and the couple was soon able to return to safer grounds. Richard, a factory worker, said: "It was scary but Bex was more worried than me. She said yes — but I think she just wanted to get off the boulder."
The pair were busy hiking in Norway when Richards took Morley to the pretty intimidating boulder. The rock is around five meters cubed. Due to its easy access that does not require any climbing gear, it is a popular site for base jumping. Kjeragbolten itself is quite a popular tourist attraction because of the unusual geographic phenomenon. And by Richards' unique gesture, it has probably gained even further popularity.
Richards' incredible feat can be compared to Tokyo's Yasushi "Yassan" Takahashi, who used the mapping tool Google Earth and GPS art to propose to his lady love, Natsuki. The 31-year-old Yassan is believed to have traveled all across Japan using a GPS device to spell "Marry me" and presented the complete trip on Google Earth as his proposal gesture for Natsuki.
Reports stated he roughly traveled around 4,451 miles, all the way from the island of Hokkaido to the shores of Kagoshima, a feat that took six months, to mark his wedding proposal gesture. The only thing that would give hardcore romantics a greater "high" is probably Richards idea.
