Tree Down- Ogwen - Gunbarrel

Apparently 'a big tree has come down right at the bottom of the gun barrel at Ogwen - looks quite dodgy......'

I guess this is in addition to the one at the top. Below Ogwen Bank.

Yes this is quite dodgy! Tree is all the way across at water-level towards the bottom of the gunbarrel. It's quite hard to see from the river until you're right on it and then there's no where to stop and get out. It's definitely a portage.

The tree below ogwen bank falls can be avoided river left at normal levels but would get worse at higher levels.
