What get-out are people using for this section now?

We paddled it yesterday and there was considerably more barbed wire around than last time we did it. We ended up getting out on river right where the small trib comes in.

A Red Dagger Juice was lost today (16/02/10) on the Conwy in north Wales.

The boat is well and truly pinned about 1m under the flow on the final drop of Bryn Brass falls.
Hopefully it will come free at some point over the next week or so, so please keep a look out for it.

If you have any information, either reply on here, or call me on 07758 224160, or contact Deb Cook in North Wales.

And if anyone was wondering, the swimmer was fine, albeit a bit cold!

Thanks,
Chris

Whilst we were getting out, had a bit of hassle off a landower yesterday, saying we were not allowed to get out river left just before the bridge. We then asked him if it was ok to get out on river right. He then replied, thats fine. I suggest people just get out river right before the bridge just to save hassle off him.
Better a bad day on the water than a good day at school!

Also see tree warning here:

I would also advise paddlers to use discretion when getting changed in the car park - as well as being aware of the presence of a path down to the river behind the wall, immediately downstream of the bridge (on river right).

There is currently a tree in the bottom of Bryn Bras falls, in the final chute. At the level we did it (3 on the A5 gauge) you could avoid it by going down a twisty rocky line left of the main chute. Worth inspecting especially if you've got a weak group.Conrad

Oh yeah, as there's no mention of it on this guide, the take out for this section is downstream of the bridge mentioned above, river right there is a set of steps with a big sign from the WCA, which leads up to a lay-by. I think it's the next lay-by after the one with the cafe in if you're driving down from the get on.Conrad
