Canyon Experience :
     

A really nice canyon with some good pitches. Not the longest, but well worth doing.

Whilst the flow was one clean curtain on the weir, levels were moderate in the canyon. with the water in the stream itself looking very low.

All anchors were good apart from the guideline bolts at the bottom of the corkscrew (A5) which were no longer there/ smashed up. Not an issue for our group as those are predominantly for less experienced canyoneers or commercial led trips.
