in South Wales
An excellent spate stream: continuously hard paddling. Watch out for the grade 6 fall, just after a bridge: this has been run but only in big flood, most will portage river left. There is a boxed in weir just above Pontardawe which is sketchy in big flood, portage right if necessary. Takeout just above the tunnel in town.
Takeout in Pontardawe at the lower of the two A474 bridges: there is a carpark just upstream of the bridge on river right. Putin at the northern outskirts of Rhyd-y-fro: a small road (Barans Road) heads off the A474 and crosses the river at a bridge. Alternatively take the RH turn further up to a bridge over the Afon Egel.
