Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Brecon Beacons Conditions Report 27.02.202 - River levels are high at the moment but not super high on .52 meters which means all gorge walking, gorge scrambling and Canyoning events will be suitable for the next day. The rain will come in for the next few days and the river levels are already high and the land saturated. Any extra rain will increase the levels of the rivers rapidly. This may cause the initial cancellation of the Canyoning and swift water on the gorge. We predict the canyoning will be unsuitable on the weekend but should still be ok for gorge walking and gorge scrambling. The levels will have to be monitored on a daily basis.
