Narrows in Zion- permits etc

Please post a link if this question was asked before
I am going there in late May, want to do the entire Narrows one way and camp out one night. Are permits required to camp? are they hard to get? It seems like a very popular thing to do.

Also are there services to shuttle you to one end?

thanks!

Something to do near Vegas, late May

I've been invited to a friend's wedding in Vegas on the last weekend of May. It's an expensive/long trip out there from the UK so I'm looking for something to tack on to make the most of it. But none of the friends I'll be with in Vegas are climbers so I'm riding solo.

Hey guys, I've searched high and low for tips on good mountains to climb in April. I have snow shoes and a sled but the rest of my party will not be geared up for a snow climb.

Tucson Area Peak Bagging

I'm going to be in the Tucson area in the beginning of March. Is there local guidebook that covers some peaks in the area?

I'll be there for 5 days, so suggested peaks are welcome too. I'll have like 1/2 days to be able to hike, so looking for 4-5 hour hikes within an hour or so of town.

So far it looks like Safford/Panther, Golden Gate, Wasson, and Keystone may be good choices.

An odd request for anyone climbing Wheeler's Peak soon. An odd request for anyone climbing Wheeler's Peak soon.

Hey guys, I was referred to this forum from reddit.com/r/mountaineering. I know this is a long shot and I know it may sound ridiculous but I have been visiting the Taos/Angelfire area for the past few days and today, being my last day before heading back to Austin, climbed Wheeler's Peak. It was my first time doing any sort of major hiking and felt incredibly accomplished getting to write in the registry at the top. ...
