English term or phrase:stone obstructions
Glavo was in the lead riding his Blackwind who was moving cautiously along the path looking askance at the abyss gaping beside. The others were following him trying to keep as close as possible to the vertical wall of the cliff. They were making their way very slowly, avoiding steep ledges, crossing ***stone obstructions*** and rapid mountain streams.
Dear native English speakers!
I don't really think this term fits the register properly. Could you please advise something better here? What I mean here is huge heaps or piles of stones on their way over which they have to clamber.
clambering over rockfalls obstructing their pathway
Explanation: Clambering gives the sense of effort needed in struggling over the piles of rocks, which as they are lying on a path must have fallen there.
Rapidly flowing mountain streams..
Cascading mountain streams..
