We did first (most likely)descent in 1988, paddled this from Ease Gill by the old railway carriage, just west of Tan Hill pub . You can get on from road directly adds about an hour to the trip time. and a long shuttle. Ease Gill becomes Whitestone gill before becoming Sleightholme Beck. narrow meander but flowing to start, Gardullay stbeck widens. Beware a slot in a limestone slab, not far upstream form the gorge, down which most water flows. The gorge is formed on a fault line between the limestone and sandstone beds. Paddling it is not recommended as there are undercuts, siphons and shallow bases to all the ledge drops. Gorge monster s live here! Easiest portage is on right bank for about 400m.
