   We discussed several adventure sports last year after the "canyoning" tragedy, but I didn't see "coasteering" in the archives.
   "Coasteering" is jumping off a cliff, with a helmet wet suit, and boots on.  It's a combination of cliff diving and mountain climbing and probably a few others.  A check shows it's existed since at least 1986.
   I don't have my Barnhart New Words handy.
   There are a lot of opportunities for coasteering here among the fjords, but I haven't seen it offered.
