staminaSouth Kaibab Down-Explored Inner Gorge-Bright Angel Out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 6, 2006

stamina

Went with my best friends or The Uusual Suspects. The South K down was pretty brutal on the knees, especially the last mile to the CO River. This is like climbing a mountain in reverse, by ruining your knees on the descent, then wondering how in the hell you are going to get out of this huge hole. Stayed down at the Phantom Ranch and explored the Inner Gorge for 2 days. And yes there is beer down there. The hike from the Ranch toward the North Rim to Ribbon Falls (awesome) is a must. Hiked out via The Bright Angel Trail. Great experience and one I want to share again in my life. Beyond beautiful.

2008 November 30: My first time hiking in Grand Canyon! Daddy and I went down the Bright Angel trail, just .8 miles round-trip to the first switchback. I was just learning to walk, so Daddy only had to carry me part of the way.

Words fail me to describe how great (and beautiful) this hike was. It was like nothing I'd ever done before. I'm hoping to return in 2010 and do a rim-to-rim hike.

The hardest hike I have ever done. We were so unprepared. We didn't have any of the right gear, or enough food, it was so bad. It was beautiful and I would do it again, next time I will be prepared.

Day 1 - went from the North Rim via the Kaibab trail to the Bright Angel Campground next to Phantom Ranch; spent the night there. Day 2 -took the Bright Angel trail to the south rim, then took the Kaibab trail back to Bright Angel campground, spent a second night there. Day 3 - hiked back to the North Rim. Got very lucky on the weather as the tempertures never exceeded 95F.

a couple days after my 16th birthday (celebrated on mt charleston) we drove to the north rim of the grand canyon and stayed at the quaint jacobs lake lodge. I took a hike to Cape Final, a wonderful secluded "diving board" of an overlook. saw only a few souls on trail and none at the overlook. took a bit of class 3ish scramblng at the end. i may have ended up at a different spot, but a great view and fun scramble/hike in the end

Nice day hike...Steep, and a bit rocky, but certainly cuts down on the traffic of Bright Angel!
