The "mad-mile", superb countinuos grade 3.

Ewen on one of the ledge drops.

The "Grade 4" drop before the Witches Cauldron. Note the boulders and log-jam!

The grade 5+ Witches Cauldron - anyone fancy it?!

One of the many fences on the lower section.

The evil final drop eating Ewen's boat.

The egress point, showing the water level needed.
