Icefall.

Screefall.

Buðaklettur

The sense of the ancient word “fall” is preserved in English today in the expression “falling away,” and the word “fell,” denoting a primitive evil. It denotes the state of entering what is not there, of suddenly having no earth holding you up, which the planet does, kindly enough.

It holds you up in all sorts of different ways. And then it lets you go.
