GUIDE TO THE AFON CEIRW
(GR 976455 to Grade 6 gorge)
NAME OF RIVER: Ceirw.
APPROX LENGTH: 2.5 km.
TIME NEEDED: Unknown.
ACCESS HASSLES: Access situation unknown.
WATER LEVEL INDICATORS: Unknown.
GRADING: 2 to 3 (because of tree hazards).
MAJOR HAZARDS/ FALLS: G6 Gorge at Ty-Nant. Full inspection impossible for 500m, that may drop 50m in several falls. A strand of barbed wire under first bridge to sneak under.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Take out of the river before the loop above the grade 6 gorge, to the old A5. This narrow bit has a nice stable beginners wave but is virtually blocked by many nasty trees. The portage to continue the river is a long walk to below the gorge down the old A5, to a path through a field.
Then you are on the main section of the river. Carrying on is recommended.
