Big Falls

Big Falls is still flowing. Part of the trail was washed out by floods early this year. We set cairns to make it easier to follow the trail through this part. There are two caves above Big Falls. We hiked to the lower cave, but the upper cave required class 4 and 5 moves to reach.
Be cautious of stinging nettles. See photo to the right. If you brush up against them, they inject a cocktail of irritants. Though not dangerous, you will feel a sting for some time after coming in contact with the nettles.
It looks like the Monsoon season has started.
