    The grammar of "giving"

    Is "giving the sensation of entering a hole" grammatically equal to "which gave the sensation of entering a hole"?


    Jackson Hole, originally called Jackson's Hole, is a valley located in the U.S. state of Wyoming, near the western border with Idaho. The name "hole" derives from language used by early trappers or mountain men, who primarily entered the valley from the north and east and had to descend along relatively steep slopes, giving the sensation of entering a hole. These low-lying valleys are surrounded by mountains and contain rivers and streams, which were good habitat for beaver and other fur-bearing animals.

    IMO, yes.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
