A fun climb with a fun group of people. We all found the route went faster and easier than we thought it would. Had nice weather and great views. Continued on to SGA.

Climbed to the summit with my brother and random french guy. Awesome summit! Very loose scramble though!

First time up NGA. We climbed SGA the day before. A great weekend, the first day of the re-opening of the park.

Climbed it early in the morning before doing Tabernacle Dome later. Fun peak and awesome views. I bypassed the 5.5/5.6 crack on the way up but soloed it twice later on just for fun and did not think it came close to 5.5 or 5.6. Brought rope and slings for rappels but never bothered with them. Cool seeing some other SPers' names in the register.

Short approach, and pleasantly sketchy desert peak. One somewhat iffy section, otherwise I enjoy the challenge of these peaks. Great views on summit.

Finally! Not the hardest Zion Peak I've climbed, but certainly the most cursed (for me). Thanks cp0915 for helping me to end the 40-year curse. Tame compared to Bridge Mt, Zion, but the big exposure certainly gets your attention.

Went again Oct 01, 2011; this time with a justifiably cautious friend-- quite a difference in perspective.

3rd time on Oct 15, 2011. This mountain is definitely getting more popular.

There is a way to right of the crux face, then up a gully, that is easy class 4.

Awesome looking peak and very fun climb. I thought the first pitch was the hardest. We climbed the crack and it was easy 5th class by Colorado standards. A layback move worked great. Everything above was no harder than 4th class. We climbed it in 5 pitches (a lot of easy scrambling but we didn't feel like putting the rope away and getting it back out again and didn't know quite what to expect). WARNING: on the first rap (down the chimney/lip from the flattish top part of the ridge) there is a HUGE rock ready to go. I bumped it with my foot and it teetered. Very scary.

A great desert peak. I never noticed the attack ants that are supposed to be guarding the rap stations.

Was featured in Climbing Magazine as a 5.6, but the crack up the middle of the east ridge is scrambling grade, maybe 5.4, no need for pro. There is a modern rap sling on tree above. We did Pine Valley Peak which was much more of a challenge in terms of bad rock and exposure, but still, like 5.5, and then ran over and tagged North Guardian. 2nd time ever back in this part of Zion, can't wait to spend loads more time here, a hidden gem with tons to do. Cheers.

Climbed up the East Ridge. It was easier than I expected but there was no where to place any gear so I ended up free climbing the route and then setting up a belay for my partner. Fun scrambling and great views from the summit. I'm glad I got to climb North Guardian Angel because I always thought it was such an interesting mountain.

It was again a hot summer day, but in the Kolob Terrace section of Zion it is bearable. Started hiking too late and got little lost on the way between the Northgate Peaks and North Guardian Angel (too many attacking ponderosa trees we had to walk around) and ended up doing the Class 3 slab in the noon sun. Made it to the top of the first section and was waiting for my partner to meet me there. Suddenly he totally gave up in the middle of the first slab. I guess not a good place to figure out his phobia that at certain height without rope he can not think straight and starts panicking a little bit. Had rope in my bag the whole time and could of use the tree close to the top of the slab as a belay station, but rather than risking decided to descent. Insecurity about particular climb and a fear is almost definitely disaster ready to happen. So it is my first unfinished business, but I’m hoping to come back some time and try it again.

Solo outing out of the Wildcat Cyn TH, after hiking up Angels Landing and Observation Pt earlier in the day. Much looser than I was expecting, and the first bit of the ridge--the crux (steep, a bit loose, and mostly holdless friction)--was quite intimidating... until I wandered around a bit to the right, and found easier, if more exposed, ground. Climbed this in boots, but rock shoes would have made it more secure, and probably more enjoyable. (Looking around a bit harder for the even easier lines that exist might have made it more secure, too. Supposedly there's a class 3 crack somewhere around there, although I didn't see anything resembling that).



Once you accept the fact that the rock is chossy, it's a nice climb, with some excellent exposure, a bit spicy in places, and cool views. Carried a 60m rope, and ended up using it to rappel the crux pitch rather than downclimb cruddy rock. (A 50m would have sufficed).

My first real friction-slickrock/crappyzionrock climb. It was a bit challenging for a big hiker guy, especially since we free climbed the thing, but everything went smoothly. Thanks to my partners, cp0915 and Mark, for being great teachers.
