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.

Was Rope Swinging Banned for All Arches or Just these 2?

So a lot of the news articles just generalize and say they banned rope swinging all out, but then this news articles says its ONLY at 2 arches; Corona and Gemini: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/01/06/fe ... me-iconic/

King's Peak in true Winter

Has anyone reached the summit of King's Peak in the December-February months? I have gone up in March several times but conventional wisdom has always been to go up in spring instead of Winter. What are the drawbacks from going in January? The cold?

This is awesome.

I just read this on the local news about Ben Woolsey, a 72 year old hiker who summited Timp 72 times this year. Truly something I would like to aspire to, especially at that stage in life.

The Old Aspen Grove Trail

There's a newspaper article on an old trail segment up Mount Timpanogos: http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/local-man-wants-to-see-original-aspen-grove-trail-reopened/article_e50ae16b-d03c-5f75-84a9-c181cfae835f.html. The man in the article has apparently died, judging from an obituary I found when I Googled his name. Phil told me where the lower access to this trail is, though. I made it perhaps halfway up, veering above the new trail, then switching back toward the mountain. However, when the badly overgrown trail reached a rock ledge, it seemed to peter ...
