😃If the promised rain arrives on Saturday night I plan to visit a lesser paddled river in the Pennines – aiming for the eastern end of Wensleydale. Whilst I’m looking at potentially gd. 2/3 these kind of spate rivers require sharp paddling skills at the grade. Plenty of unknowns, including fallen trees, demand the ability to run long, continuous sections often without inspection. You must be able to hit small eddies and play a strong part within the small team.
1. Event co-ordinator & Leader - Pete Riley
2. Trip type: River grade 2 /3
3. Level of ability: Competent grade 3 - see above.
4. Date: Sun 6th Feb.
5. Venue & Meet & Lift Sharing Locations: TBC - depends on water & group (to be determined 0800hrs at the latest on the day of paddling).
6. Anything else:
I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.
