There are 2 dangerous tree blockages in the gorge below 3 Horseshoes, they can be seen from the road, but would be difficult to stop above / portage them in high flows - Jeffrey Ridd has photos on South Wales Kayakers facebook page.

We paddled the lower section of the Sawdde yesterday 13/10/19 with the level reading 6 on the upper weir gauge:

There was a tree across 50 metres below the slot drop below Three Horsehoes put-in. This is easily seen from the small road river right. It would be difficult to stop between the slot drop and the obstruction, so we opted to put-in immediately below the obstruction river right.
