The best way to avoid a pitfall is to be on the lookout for them – then to carefully step over them or around them, once you see them. It’s easy to fall headlong into a hole of any kind, especially if you’re not looking. Some pits are easy to crawl out of. But some are dark and deep, so dark and so deep that it will take someone else – or maybe even a group of strong, able-bodied people – to haul you out of the pit completely.
