Narrow and grade 1 meanders to begin. Small ledges bring the occasional surprise before leading to short open gorge section...

does it really matter what the BCU star awards say

As long we are out on the rivers having fun - that is what matters.

No doubt then that BCU restating the star award syllabus will improve enjoyment rating!!!!!!!


C1 kills the knees and ankles
