chrisferroProdigal Sun  Sucess!

Owen Garland and I did Prodigal Sun in May or June of 1999. We aided just about all of it, even though there are a couple of sections of 5.8. It's tough to switch between aid and free with all of that crap hanging off you. The river crossing can be tricky if the water is high (collect up some sticks to use as ski-poles to steady you). We did the first 4 pitches on day 1, slept in the portaledge, did the next 4 pitches plus the couple hundred feet of dirty scrambling to get to the top well after dark (we're no aid speed demons). We bivvied and then hiked down on day 3. It's a great aid route for novice aiders like us. The only other aid routes we'd done to practice were Mordor Wall and Glass Menagerie. We later tried Space Shot, but bailed when it started raining and the sandstone started turning into mud (scary). Then we went to Vegas and saw Star Wars Episode 1.

First day, told friend we should hike to Emerald Pools - then (heh-heh) convinced him that we might as well go up Angels Landing. He was doubtful on the chains the way up but glad at the top.

Beautiful hike. Loved the steep section with the enourmous drop-offs on either side. Got an early start to beat the major heat, but not earlier enought to beat the major crowds of a saturday. I bet this would make for a wicked full moon hike. I'll have to come back to try that.

Got an early start and was up in about 45 minutes... I like heights, so didn't need the chains. Too many people coming up when I was going down. Still a fun hike...

Wow!!! What a nice hike. My words, obviously, won't do any justice to describe this place. You have to experience it yourself. This place is a must for every hiker.

Also November 2005.
Fun hike, although it was crowded both times I was there. I admit I eagerly use the cables. It's very easy hiking, but the heights make me feel unsteady.

Summited early on a cool May morning and only saw a handful of other people. This is a great climb with awesome views and a fun scrambling section at the end. I didn't think the final ridge was scary at all, I kept waiting for it to get scary but never did.

One of my all time favorite hiking experiences. The view was amazing. Funny though ... there were tons of people on the trail....but only a couple on the summit...hmmm

Finished the 4 day trans-Zion hike with this one. Fun scrambles, great views, too many people hiking it that probably shouldn't :)

Did the summit round trip in under three hours. Very crowded, but the view was well worth it.

There were so many (big) people staggaring around on the chains and most of them didnt care if you fell off one of the vertical drop-offs on either side so my mountaineering instinct told me to do summit this another day. Love the scenery, no words can describe Zion.

Was the first person on the trail and had the summit to myself, but passed 50 people on the way down! Much easier than I was led to believe- even the fin is fairly easy, unless you're terrified of heights. Nice hike.

Hiked Angel's Landing from the lodge in 3 exhausting hours round trip. The final ridge is magical especially with 100 degree temps thinning out the crowds.

Hiked Angels Landing after coming out of the Virgin River Narrows. Very nice hike. Straight forward with a bit of excitement at the top. Zion is a stunning place.
