Spring Gorge Walking

I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of gorge-walking, or canyoning, but low rainwater provides river levels which can permit entry to a gorge usually inaccessible – your task is to take a journey through the gorge which may involve, walking, swimming (sometimes down rapids), jumping, climbing, abseiling and so on. The sunny weather and lack of rain this week allowed me and four friends to take a trip to a gorge about 20 minutes from Aberystwyth. Despite the sunny weather of late, none of us were under any illusions. A week ago it was winter. It was going to be cold.

Clad in wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets, we clambered down a wall next to the road. As the road disappeared from view, all signs of civilisation went too. You could be mistaken for thinking you were miles from anywhere. It was beginning to feel like a real adventure!
