We were in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and signed up for the 1,000 ft. waterfall climb (Dunn’s River Falls), set in the beautiful and natural Jamaican countryside.
The falls were huge with fast moving water over large boulders. But the naturally-terraced waterfall terrain created pools of water that made the climb relatively easy. Well, mostly easy. There were a few scraped ankles and bruised toes, but we all made it up in good shape!
The Jamaican guide instructed us to hold hands and form this long line of people connected like a rope – the rope being made of our hands and arms. It was counterintuitive at first, but it was only when we let go and picked our own rocks to climb, did a few of us slip, fall or scrape a knee.
