Re: Pin situation and its remedy

Biggest lesson learnt was probably that was it worth the damage to self and boat, probably not!

Re: Pin situation and its remedy

Re: Good Times, with Questionable Lines.

'Chip shop drop' is a crude modern Anglicising of a perfectly good Welsh name. Had to use the expression recently so other paddlers would understand, it left a bitter taste of shame.

What are the ditches at 0.55 and 2.55?

Cheers,
Thanks!

0.55 is The Cwm Llan on back of Snowdon.
2.55 The shot facing towards me, is the Balmuccia Section on the Lower Sesia In Italy. When the water was high and the right hand line opens up a bit more.

Re: Cwm Llan Hydro

I went up there last week, and looks like the work is almost complete and water will be removed sometime before January talking to the gentleman living at the bottom who was a paddler.
Heres the video anyway.
