With Jon, Terri, and Ryan. We went down South Kaibab and returned via Bright Angel. We met some Canadian geology students on the way back up. One of them was hyponatremic and hypoglycemic so we helped them out some and slowed down our pace considerably.

Beautiful trail made really easy but the relatively easy hiking. We hiked this to do Garden Creek (4CIV). Started at 7am, got back the rim at 6:45pm. We also went to the river. Awesome trails with steller views. Indian Gardens is beautiful as well. It would have been too hot on the hike back up except for the fact there were a bunch of clouds that helped cover the sun

I have hiked this trail 6 times, I believe. It is one of my favorite trails. My dad and I tend to go during snowstorms to get cancellations at Phantom Ranch, so most times it has been snowy as I hiked down.

Really wonderful coming back up this way (I came down from North Kaibab). I loved the frequent water access especially. The weather was just right in October.

Breakfasted at the rim on last day of a trip and was talked into a same day rim to river and back trip via Bright Angel, prior to our midnight flight. We scampered down (those warning signs don't apply to us, we thought)and had a nice lunch at Pine Creek Beach on the river. The trudge back up was long, hard and heat strokey. We deserved every broiling inch of it.

jcsesicaS. Kaibab down/Bright Angel up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2010


We went down the South Kaibab on 3-24 (My 51st B-Day!). 3 nights at the bottom of the canyon and then up BA Trail to Indian Gardens on 3-27 and then out on 3-28. Weather was INCREDIBLE, with daytime temps ranging between 68 to 75 degrees at the river and night time lows in the mid thirties. Lots of ice at the rim and really enjoyed our instep crampons. Not a necessity but really appreciated. Great time of the year in the canyon.

Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2009


I was lucky to get a backcountry permit to camp at Indian Garden the day before. After pitching my tent there, I walked down to the Colorado river and on to Phantom ranch, got there around 3pm. Had coffee and bagel, went up S. Kaibab, then west on the Tonto trail, where I watched sunset, and then walked on to Indian Garden which I reached around 7.30 pm. A long but satisfying day!
