Everything was high so a call was sent out for anyone interested in paddling grade 3/4 on the weekend. 6 of us finally met up at Starbucks at junction 3 of the M57 (This is an ideal meeting place for anyone heading north to paddle). Boats thrown on / in a couple of cars and we were off.
We scouted Backbarrow bridge on the way – it looked very high and decided on a shorter run getting out at the woodmill. Brick shoot weir was quite big and boily but gave some of us a little bit of fun as we tried to get on the first wave. The next drop was a very large hole rather than a drop but we all popped out on the other side.
We surfed and played our way down the remaining rapids. There was no stopping on the graveyard section giving a bouncy run down to the bottom.
