Dart: Upper, Dartmeet to Newbridge

Grade 4

in Dartmoor · South West · other sections on Dart


Fabulous grade 4 classic: continuous and isolated away from the road. Highlights in order of appearance are the "mad mile" (full-on in spate), Euthanasia Falls (slidey drop on a RH bend) and "Surprise Surprise!" (an awkward slot).

Water Levels

Levels are often judged against the ledge on river left just upstream of the bridge at Newbridge. To be worthwhile, water must be on the ledge.
