There is currently a tree blocking the whole river above the last drop by the car park.

The tree at the bottom is still there, there is also a collection of trees just below the put in, can be snuck left, or portaged right.

Was on the Pattack today with low water, Don't let the trees put you off. All of the main rapids are still good to go and you have plenty of time to negotiate both obstructions

Ran the Pattack last week, there's a fallen tree across the whole river about 50m downstream of the putin - but it was easily portaged on river right.
Also, the tree on the last drop is still there, but the branches have all snapped off leaving sharp half foot spikes allong the trunk. However it is pressed up against the gorge wall, so is out of the way, but could still pose a risk.
