A slightly more serious shot of the Falls.
Went to Wilhelmina Falls today after work and walked all over these huge slabs. I have done a lot of rockclimbing in my past so am fairly sure of my technique in scrambling over this sort of terrain. It’s about keeping your weight over your feet and about keeping up some momentum. High it’s very counter instinctive to move fast but it seems to be the safest way. Upon getting to the overlap where the water freefalls there was a bit of moss and dirt in some cracks that I was obliged to use and before I knew it my boots were wet and dirty with a fraction of their former friction. In my precarious stance I attempted to clean them and after ten minutes or so was happy to move on now very aware of my precarious location since I’d just stared it in the face for a while. Maybe I should of paid attention to that sign ;-)
Lovely spot, went there in the summer with kids, mum, sister and her kids lovely walk but the advertised perennial nature of the falls didn’t live up to expectations with it being bone dry. Great to see it today with heaps of water.
