GORGE WALKING, CANYONING, GORGE SCRAMBLING CARDIFF AND SWANSEA PREDICTED REPORT – Again we have low river levels with very little rain over the past few days. 0.19 meters is pretty much the lowest the rivers will run but still water flowing and still enough depth for all the jump sections. Very sensetive time for debris in the rivers as the land gets dryer and the trees and rocks become more unstable. Essential to check for debris and hazards at all stages of the gorge walking, gorge scrambling and Canyoning activities.
