Canyoning/Ghyll scrambling/Gorge walking North Wales

Post by a93h201 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 8:23 am


I want to get a list together of good places to canyon in north wales.

Prysor - good above Crestor, no ropes needed. bolts avaible for getting down Crestor with ropes. section after Crestor, ok.
Cynfal falls - has been surgested. will be hopefully checking this one out this weekend. 70m of canyon rope at the ready.

From other posts from other threds -
Fairy Glen section of the Afon Conwy
upper Arddu Llanberris Falls

I've had a good search on here. still looking for more surgestions. please post your surgestions

How was your mission down the Upper Cynfal?

The whole Cynfal is very gorge walkable but it does need ropes for some sections.

Prysor - all of it can be done without rope but it's handy for cresta & for the slide after cauldron drop.

Plug this ( 53.069251,-4.016987 ) into google maps for a right adventure - I know nothing about it apart from it's been done before.

Cierw gorge is a cool one - 52.987162,-3.503698

Upper Upper Upper... Conway - 52.992367,-3.773045
