Ran the upper Clydach on the 23rd level was dropping as we got on , there are now many trees down and one particularly nasty one after the undercut right , in a heathy flow it will be at a nasty height , inspect before running .

WCA have announced that the box weir is to be removed starting in August 2011: http://www.canoewales.com/news.aspx?ArticleID=84

Watch out for scaffolding/debris in the river.

Walked this today , the first waterfall drop is now clear as the tree has moved to the side of the drop pool . The weir near the get out has been removed . But most of the slides and rapid areas have river wide trees in or on them , basically there is over a dozen trees / large stumps in he main flow .

Well, the weir is still there & there are now more trees across the river, particularly branches just around the first corner below the put in, a tree below the stone foot bridge and more trees around the corner after the main drop (which has definitely now been paddled, it is shallow). It would be a very dangerous paddle in high water.
