|Paddleable||medium to high|
in North Wales · Snowdonia
A serious undertaking.
Good levels are difficult to catch. The water is released from the Tanygrisiau reservoir and it will normally go for a few days after rain but releases are unpredictable. Needs to have enough water flowing over the slabs at the putin to be paddleable.
Takeout at the confluence with the Teigl where there is a footpath out to the road. Head upstream along the A496 and get on at a small bridge off the main road as soon as it comes back to the river. If you head up higher than this there is a really nasty drop under the next bridge upstream.
