Ystrad Bach Bridge to Maerdy

8km of grade 2/3 (5) on the river Ceirw

Pleasant easy paddle until the stiff grade 5 gorge. This can be portaged, but is best inspected before getting on (from the road to Gaer-gerrig and the old A5). From here to the confluence is an excellent paddle with just a few weirs to keep an eye out for. The gnarly gorge is a good trip in it's own right, although you've got to catch the water levels just right.
