  River Dyfi
At the time of writing there were 2 river wide tree strainers in this section, both of which could be paddled over at high levels but could be portages at lower levels.
Below this there is a large eddy on river right (where the town folk dump their unwanted fridges etc.) anybody portaging the grade 5 can put back on here.
The last little gorge (grade 3) is clean before the river opens up for the last kilometre of easy water down to the road bridge.
