Linton main weir at a good level
Linton main weir at a good level
The thaw had started, though levels were not yet huge. Much snow remained in Wharfedale, but a lot more had melted in Littondale, so a lot of the water we were paddling on the middle Wharfe had come from the Skirfare. This was a good level, keeping the group moving, even on the flatter sections, but not so high that Linton weir formed a dangerous stopper. The line was on river right, a few metres out from the concrete, where a tongue forms, and the stopper can be blasted through head on, rather than at an angle. After paddling the weir face, it is time to move river left, avoiding the drop on the second weir, and taking out just downstream to keep well away from the grade 5 Linton Falls.
