First time to SLC

Coming in for the holiday weekend and we've never spent any time in the SLC area, though I've spent time in southern Utah. With access to a good corporate rate we plan on staying downtown but are open to staying elsewhere if needed. So, with so many options I'm putting a post out for advice.
Few things:
-Like to keep the trail heads within an hour or two of the city.
-Wanted to do Kings ...

Does anyone have a Lone Peak GPS track?

I'm planning to hike up to the summit of Lone Peak in June and I am not familiar with the area. I have reviewed a bunch of sites and trip logs and I'm running into the following issues:

(1) there are multiple route options (Jacobs Ladder, Bear Canyon, etc.), but some of these trails/trail heads have either been renamed or may have multiple names (e.g., http://climb-utah.com/WM/lonepeak.htm)

(2) access to ...

Gear for Narrows

Hi -
Not sure if this is the right place to post. If it's not, please lmk if another forum is more appropriate.
I'm heading out to the Narrows in Zion for an overnight trip during the first/second week of May. Regarding gear, what kinds of clothing do I need? Wetsuit? Drysuit? Farmer John's? Shorts? Neoprene pants/leggings?

What I've found so far is that a Wetsuit is overkill and a Drysuit gets too darn hot. ...

Zion Classic Peaks

So a similar post was made not too long ago but the requirements were different.
We have 3 days in Zion and are looking for routes from 4th-5.6ish. Up to 5.8ish if it is a short pitch.
We're in good shape and decently fast, so we'd like to fill the days sunrise to sunset, Apr 24-26.
My buddy is not a canyoneer and we are not bringing wetsuits... unless a canyon trumps the peaks.

What ...

Zion Scrambling

I am looking for 3 or 4 peaks in Zion to do some scrambling on. I will have my wife with me, so shorter hikes would be great (like 5 miles, 2000 feet of gain type trips). Class ratings of 3 or lower. Any ideas?

Will be there in mid-April. I've done Angels Landing already FYI.

Anyone planning on doing Everest ridge in near future?

or any other somewhat prominent peak?

I'm trying to get into mountaineering but I don't want to pay 500 bucks for a course with Exum. I've been out a few times, I have experience with an ice axe, I have decent gear, and I'm in relatively decent shape.

I'd buy you a burger and or some beers if any group wouldn't mind a novice tag along to learn the ropes.

Trans Zion Trekk Mid March

Hello all,

I'm planning to do the narrows march 14th-15th, and the trans zion trek march 17th to 22nd. I've been doing my research but just had a few clarifying questions. Any help/comments would be greatly appreciated!

1) I'd love to do the narrows top down, but have found disagreeing information on whether or not the road to chamberlain's ranch will actually be open or not. Is it weather dependent or is it just plain ...

Subway Zion NP

Can you rappel directly into the subway, or do you half to take the complete top down or bottom up route? I'm looking to cut a little time off the trip.
