Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Coasteering Outdoor Adventure Activities Report for South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Brecon Beacons
Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Brecon Beacons Conditions Report 20.05.2020 – No rain again for days, this is one of the direst periods I’ve ever know in 22 years of running activities. The rivers are super low at .18 meters, the waterfalls are running low and the rivers are a trickle at the moment. We are desperate for rain and none for the next few days either. All gorge walking, Canyoning and gorge scrambling activities are manageable but need to make sure full checks on river levels especially plunge pools and bottom deaths.
The government lockdown is still in place so please do not travel to any gorge or Canyon sites at this present moment, this information is purely advisory for the conditions.
