Sawanobori at 勘七ノ沢

Access proved difficult to get to the trail head for the forest road has been blocked since April and no map we had reflected that sudden change. All in all Okura bus stop is probably the most convenient.

After passing girls wearing hats and gaiters I would find too hot even for a winter Fuji ascent (for a very warn late October day with near 20 degrees at the bottom of the mountain) and about 4 kilometers on a wide and all but flat forest road we made it to Futamata and geared up. The sight of a leech triggered some visceral fear but luckily it was a lone individual, far from the hordes we had in Minakami and we started hiking up the stream.

We first got to the first waterfall and by that time I had already dropped the top part of my tripod in a small fall. I quickly gave up the idea of trying to recover it from the tumultuous waters and resolved to lay my camera on rocks when taking a long exposure shot. The results proved satisfactory and showed a tripod is unnecessary bulk in a climbing environment.

The first fall required the use of the rope and the first few meters proved to be the most delicate on the entire day. I-san led the way and we made steady progress, while at the back I was taking pictures each of which resulted in delays of 10 to 45 seconds.

Under a threatening weather we passed 5 major waterfalls, some we passed climbing on the side while others we bypassed few tens of meters away walking on dirt. The rope was used more than 5 times but nothing was too technical. Being late October we avoided deep waters and wore jackets when passing splashing waterfalls.

In the middle a succession of dams blocked our way and had to be passed on their side, the smallest not exceeding 3 meters in height could be scaled but only I attempted to pass it this directly.

After the last major fall the stream progressively became smaller and after a final series of small waterfalls it got almost dry. We find our way back to the hiking trail by means of climbing steep scree slopes with unstable rocks threatening to fall and so requiring special care. After merging on the okura ridge highway we went down at a steady pace passing all hikers on our way. It soon got so hot I was all in sweat and could barely see anymore but before I knew it we were back at the bus stop and waited for the rest of the party.
