A fun river, with a superb gorge section. In high water an absolute blast!
The gauge at the A4069 takeout bridge should read 6-9 for a good level with the gorge gd3. When higher, the gorge becomes a continuous gd4.
Takeout at the main A4069 road bridge just south of Llangadog, or the smaller bridge 1.5km downstream. It helps if you have an OS map to find the put-in at the small bridge between Llwynfron and Twynllanan. Alternatively, for a less tree infested put-in, start your trip at Pont Aber on the A4069 for the last 1 km of the Clydach before it joins the Sawdde.
