If you ever need to get to the upper deck (one or two more climbs up there) and you are scared to cross the water falls or the area above the water falls I put in a bolt ladder.
The bolt ladder is about 20 feet to the left of the water fall. Look for a U bolt about knee high. Above that about head high is a bolt and hanger. Clip in and pull up. I put a third bolt/hanger up and over the edge, you can't see it but you will have to feel for it.
THis bolt ladder is usually wet and muddy so be prepared to get your hands dirty. But it sure beats getting swept over the falls like some of my friends (Roland and Kelly, broken foot and toes)
I put in full 1/2" bolts, so they won't rust out for a couple hundred years...or I won't be around to find out.
