Merrivale Bridge. That grin won't last...

Walk-in.

Launching.

Following photos show low-medium levels.

Nasty pinny rapid near the start.

Alex Coon and Chas Couchman enjoy the boulder ditch from hell.

The river below Ward bridge - much easier and worth considering in isolation?

The following pictures show spate on the steepest section...scary...

James Farquharson...paddling in plaster.

Chris Wheeler. He went out and bought a creek boat the next day!

Photos by Mark Rainsley, showing spate conditions. These don't show any particular rapids...it is all like that for a mile or so with no breaks!
