2 fun gorges: the first is the grade 3/4 warm-up, the second harder grade 4/5 with some probable portages. Plenty of people have paddled the spillway at the putin, but note that this is illegal.

Water Levels

Tends to flow for a few days after heavy rain when the pipes are still releasing and/or water is coming down the spillway.

Getting There

Putin at the bottom of the spillway out of Llyn Brianne, east of Llanwrtyd Wells: follow minor roads up through Rhandirmwyn and Ystradffin. Takeout at Junction Pool, at the confluence of the Tywi with the Afon Doethie, or at the next road bridge just downstream.
