This spell thrusts the ground sharply upward along a line you designate, and all spaces affected by the spell become difficult terrain.

In addition, the spell makes a trip attempt against any creature within an affected space at the moment of casting. The CMB for this trip equals your caster level plus your Wisdom modifier +4; make a single check against all affected creatures. Each tripped creature takes 1d6 hp bludgeoning damage due to the suddenness of the ground’s upheaval. Regardless of the check result, any creatures approaching the line must stop at an affected square, and creatures cannot charge through the line.
