The long walk or up the waterfall?

Edit: Just to clarify, 'up the waterfall' means hauling gear up from concrete walkway above the the path.

Two trips to get up and in and one trip back, however wouldn't recommend the single trip, a lot of our problems are the camera kit and 4 strobes. IP: 95.210.144.91
