geemanKaibab-Angel loop with plateau point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2014


Hiked the South Kaibab-Bright Angel loop with a detour via plateau point (adds one hour to the trip). Hit the trail at 6.15am, was back at the south rim by 2.30pm. Spent about an hour by the river.
The loop is a great alternative to the Bright Angel trail back and forth: it offers a great diversity of landscape. The descent via south Kaibab is particularly stunning, with great views of the river all along and a sense of depth that you don't find on the Bright Angel trail.

Jon, Terri, Ryan, and I drove over from Albuquerque on a whim. We had a late start but we cruised down the South Kaibab Trail and meandered up the Bright Angel Trail. The heat wasn't really a problem except for a 15-minute period while walking up the Bright Angel Trail. The views we spectacular!

Hiked this trail many times over the years. I think that it is best to go in winter, and I have hiked the canyon 4 times in snowstorms.

I started late, at 10.30 am, after getting a camping spot and backcountry permit for the next day on Indian Garden. Walked down to Tipoff and went up the same way.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2008


Did this trail twice. I love it because its so brutal. Plenty of heat and no water. The views are off the charts, and shade is a joke!

farrisglDay Round Trip: Down Bright Angel up Kaibab  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 15, 2002


I started early in the morning with 5 of my French Business Colleagues. Cold morning with the wind blowing but at the bottom short sleave weather. Left for the return up the Kaibab. Great way to do the day round trip. Slightly overcast made for perfect hiking weather. The Kaibab is spectacular!

This is the mountain lying down. Flip-flops are not
recommended. I didn't count the miles, I just started
out at Bright Angel Lodge ... and returned the following
day. Saw several desert bighorns - one looked like it had
survived an intense battle. Not recommended in July,
unless you want to lose 5 or 6 pounds.
