Over the winter some of the worst offending trees have been cleared, however, at high flows you will still be up in the overhanging branches.

The 2nd steep rapid after leaving the moor has just enough space to firmly wedge a Mamba on the left - even with 3 ropes attached we couldn't shift it, took best part of an hour to get it moving.

Last photo shows the rapid from below, not the pinned boat (that was in the slot on right of photo)
