The flat path had run out. It was steep up from here. Roots forming steps and hand holds, full of beans at this point we climbed up and up. Feels good, like you’re making progress, when you can look down and see a little snaking path below you :)
The photographs don’t make the steepness justice. Some passages are so tremendously steep that you find yourself climbing instead of walking. Since the ground is literally a few inches infront of your face, all you have to do is reach out you’re hands and voila – you’re climbing!
