A difficult portage on river left. Fun water follows in the spectacular gorge, watch out for Gladys Fall another waterfall that is usually portaged.

Takeout at the small bridge in Pontneddfechan, at the start of the "waterfall walk". Heading north onto the A4109 you need to walk the boats down the first forestry track on the right (with a green gate). 500m down this track is a bridge over the river.
