Just wanted to add to the notion of treating this section of river with respect!

I paddled it with two mates at the beginning on September 17 on low.

We had to get out and inspect about 10 times (looking for the grade 5s and Conwy falls) and still nearly missed the get out.
All this talk about markers/posts etc to help you determine where to get out, not sure if we just missed them or they weren't there, but we certainly didn't see them. Also the bridge you need to get out before is virtually impossible to see until the last eddy before it(which I would recommend using one higher, so this eddy is a last resort).

Please have a really good look from the bridge by Conwy falls café (the get out) before doing this river.

All this said and done with slightly more water this would have been a class run.
