Tree in final rapid of lower Roy

Post by lewis=) »

in the rapid after the bridge there is a large tree in the river, it was possible to get around it today although two paddlers became pinned for a time, (Low level) but I imagine this would have been much more serious had there been more water. I see the tree shifting with out some serious water or dynamite so be careful out there and inspect before running.

Incidentally the dangerous trees wedged in the rapid below railway bridge on Roy, that has been there a couple of years and was very nasty has now been washed away completely. Totally gone. Relax and enjoy a nice rapid again, slightly blind from above. Take out is just after it on LHS, small path diagionals up left to a stile on bend on the small road, next where that road passes under the railway line.
A/WWSR 4/5star (river & sea) with the best!
