The first canyon in the upper section of the Grains Gill
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The boulders are slippery from the water and vegetation, but there isn't all that much water flowing in the Grains Gill, making this particular canyon just a strenuous hike.
My main concern was to try and stay out of water, because I didn't want to get my boots soaked. Apart from that, I also was careful where I put my feet because I didn't want to slip and hurt my ankles in the process. A few years earlier, I had slipped and broken one of them on much easier terrain, and that had taught me to be more focused.
