Walk along knife-edges and narrow ledges teetering high above narrow valleys. Negotiate narrow passages blasted into sheer cliffs while ducking below towering rock faces.

immediately climbs, cutting through a grove snags and fallen logs being rapidly overtaken of firs. Bypassing a steep slope, the way then by feisty new greenery."
