Cwm Nantcol: Pont Cerrig to Artro confluence

Grade 5
Length 5 km
Paddleable high to spate

in North Wales ยท Snowdonia


A tough run. The top 3km is ditch-bashing, but contains some good drops. As you reach the first of the Nantcol gorges, the drops get more difficult, followed by easier second gorge. Takeout at the confluence with the Artro.
