Ledge drop on the Upper Swale - low water
For those new to the Upper Swale, paddling in high enough water to put on at Hoggarths Bridge (High Bridge), this unnamed ledge drop can come as a slight surprise, very soon after starting the trip and not expecting anything technical before Wainwath. The line, in high enough water to make a trip worthwhile, is over the projecting rock just right of the centre of the picture, where a good boof stroke will take you clear of any stopper and onto a landing in deep water. Paddling over the ledges which take up most of the width of the fall can be a bit jarring to the back !
