The Rheaedr Mawddach

2 12 2011

On the 30th November 2011 WEK paddler Matty Nicholas ran the Rheaedr Mawddach in Wales. The drop falls 86 feet over 3 drops that cascade into each other. It is made all the worse by an old mine shaft about three quarters of the way down the drop on the river right side. Matty cleared the first two drops which was the crux of the run. The hit from the landing at the bottom of the second drop forced him to take a roll on the lip of the final fall. The photo here is a taster of what is to come. A full series of photos will be out and a video later on this week.
