Twrch (Bala): Talardd to Llanuwchllyn

Grade 4/5
Length 4.5 km
Paddleable medium to spate

in North Wales ยท Snowdonia


A fun run whose difficultly depends very much on the levels. Starting with 2km of grade 3/4 the run hots up after reaching a 1.5m horseshoe weir. Downstream is hard grade 4 and two grade 5 falls. The 2nd grade 5 is about 50m above the takeout bridge, and it is easy to walk up and have a quick look-see before you get on.
