    Confederate Statues removed in New Orleans

    Thread Starter: savanna3313

    I'm curious as to what people think about this who are not associated with the area. Most people think, right or wrong, it's history and heritage.

    Birch Hollow, what a fun canyon.
    As far as layout and flow goes, the design and creation of this canyon was well thought out.

    Start with a short hike down a wash, push through a couple of short and scenic rappels, throw in a few tricky downclimbs,
    add a walk through a cool forested section that ends with a big drop, pop off a few rappels with logs at the bottom and finish up with a couple of really fine rappels down a fluted and twisty crack. From there, hike a mile back to some easily spotted vehicles. What could be better?

    Oh! and this canyon is a popular one too! We made contact with four other groups the day we were in there.

    Thanks to my canyonneering partners for a fun time; Jessica, Andrea, Justin, Jeremy, Koda, Lorin, Alijeh
