2009 10 21 - White water trip - The Usk

This was a Neil's birthday trip so a good reason to take a day off work. It rained the night before but as Neil described the water level: it was low low low. We had to battle through many sections but avoided any portage. Racked up a full 8 miles from Sennybridge to Brecon but if we did the trip again advise taking out at Aberan as it saves you paddling another 2.5 miles for little reward. Highlights of the trip were the three ledges: the first small but very gnarly with rocks sticking up, the second higher but straightforward drop of about 3 feet, the last a bit higher just over 4 feet but with a hole from the pour over with a nasty rock hidden just below.
