Splashy fall on the Upper Wharfe
The zig-zag approach to this drop on the Upper Wharfe is SD8880 : Zig-zag drop on the Upper Wharfe, and is key to getting the line right on this final boof. At this level (0.68m on the gauge at New House, a short way downstream) there is no stopper, so almost any technique will do, as long as you are on the line. At higher levels, a good boof will probably be a great help, but the approach line won't be as constricted, giving you a bit more time to get organised.
