NN1950 : "Ecstasy" on Allt a'Chaorainn

taken 3 years ago, near to Alltchaorunn, Highland, Great Britain

"Ecstasy" on Allt a'Chaorainn
"Ecstasy" on Allt a'Chaorainn
One of the "Etive tribs", the Allt a'Chaorainn offers steep creeking as it should be, with a gradient of 80m/km. Known to paddlers as "Ecstasy", the second main rapid is a long steep granite slide with various pools on the way down, the latter giving the paddler a few moments to take a steering stroke (or perhaps to roll up) during the ride. Mary Waddington has just set off from the top and is trying to keep pointing down the slab to land cleanly in the pool just left of the second photographer. Only about the top quarter of the complete rapid (which is the longest on the river) is seen in this shot.
