Thom's upriver route is tour de force of Richmond's "Falls of the James." The Lower Falls route began with a series of Class III+ rapids that kept on climbing. The Upper Falls route has longer stretches of swift moving flat water and a busy climb at Pony Pasture (the Upper Falls map is currently under development).
