Birch Hollow - ZNP

Birch Hollow, is in my opinion, one of the best canyons in or near the park. I think it's because all the downclimbing sections. Long rappels are okay, but the downclimbs are what is fun to me. It also has very little hiking to get to the trailhead.

Re: my first canyoneering

Excellent! It's nice since you drive almost to the trailhead! Rare for Zion canyons. The exit is nice too. Did you just hike back up to the East Rim or did you go through Orderville and out the Zion Narrows?

Re: my first canyoneering

we used two vehicles and just exited through that cow pasture back east...so we took a right where you can take a left to reach the narrows...

Re: my first canyoneering

Not much. I did Imlay with a couple of climbing partners to avoid the heat one day..it was cool learning to get out of pot holes....not much into Canyoneering...as long as I am outdoors, I am a happy camper, but would rather climb so Canyoneering takes a back seat. SP has two members really into it, Scott P and Courtney (cp0915), both good guys to hook into for trips. Cheers

Re: my first canyoneering

I know Scott Patterson and sort of know Courtney.... Peak Bagger, right? Imlay is one of the toughest in Zion! Only Heaps is tougher. What a way to start!

I know Courtney now! Got to hike with him last weekend. :)

Re: my first canyoneering

allow me to apoligize then...Courtney is part of a new prison release theme in NV....they assigned me Courtney (when he is allowed out) because of his ADD problem and figured I could wear him out...well, after my last Grand Canyon experience with him....I am afraid...so thought I would pawn him off on some unsuspecting souls like you and Bo...

Re: my first canyoneering

I do like those 'bad boys' ..... ADD... no problem... men tend to focus too much on things anyway..... I like to be afraid.... but he sure put on a good act! What a gentleman! You need to come out and play with us Dow. ;)
