Have now paddled Croglin Beck from Croglin village down to the bridge at the start of the Nunnery Walks section described.
In high flows it was mostly grade 2 with extreme tree avoidance and many portages over fallen trees. There were two sandstone gorges encountered. The first was relatively easy at grade 2 but need to check there are no trees lurking in there as there is no escape. The second gorge is narrower and twisty with fast currents, mainly grade 3 but with a final stopper between undercut walls which could be a 4. We portaged the whole of this second gorge due to failing light. More tree blockages right down to the take out. Would be a fun run if ever clear of trees but at the moment is too much hard work (Sept 2012).
