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.
