One of a billion hikers  Sucess!

Just took the simple hiking route. "Simple"...well, yeah, it was steep. Not nearly as crowded as I would've expected; good to be there on a weekday.

Slowly but surely  Sucess!

reminded me of a picture email going around offering a free lunch for anyone reaching the top of some peak somewhere in China??? Pretty cool to see 1000'+ drops on both sides.

Awesome  Sucess!

It is not so scary, you have firm handholds.

Angel's Landing  Sucess!

Have climbed three times now. Great scramble and nice views. Love the name, too! Don't put your stuff down or the squirrels and chipmunks will eat through your pack!

Amazing Hike  Sucess!

Really enjoyed this hike, a nice difference from my typical Sierra terrain. Perfect weather on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Say hi to the condors.

Excellent Hike  Sucess!

Fantastic weather and a beautiful view. I suffer from a lack of fear of heights so I wasn't even really using the chains to climb and passed a few people on the way up. People in my party thought i was a little nutz.

Angel's Landing  Sucess!

Really fun hike. Thought I'd try doing it without using the chains, but I used them near the top. Starting early lets you beat the heat and crowds.

Paternity leave  Sucess!

seems like a lifetime ago We took our 3 month old on a Utah road trip. This was a great hike and I recommend the narrows for a different flavour too.

Awesome views!  Sucess!

While I expected 'company' on the trail... it was way more than I expected. Seemed a bit like an ant-hill - with constant stream of folks up & down.... Still worth the hike... but should have gotten there earlier in the day. :(

Nice View  Sucess!

Fun way to begin the day. An early start avoids the crowds. Up next inspiration point!

Very fun  Sucess!

Very enjoyable hike at the beginning of a one week trip to Zion, Bryce, and rim-to-tim of the Grand Canyon.

cool view  Sucess!

i was sorta disappointed by the amount of 'exposure' on the hike. i was under the impression i'd be scrambling up a knife-edge ridge...instead it was an easy, quite wide path to the top. the view wasn't bad though, it was an easy up and down taking only about 1hr 40min

Very fun winter scramble  Sucess!

Lots of compact snow and ice on the ridge made for some interesting travel, but kept away all but a half dozen or so. Great views!

Exciting  Sucess!

I was scared enough in a couple of places to use the chains on the way up but enjoyed the exposure later. It was a great hike.

Angels Landing  Sucess!

One day in the park and this is definitely the thing to do for the best views.

Awesome  Sucess!

Awesome scramble to the summit. Since we went in the evening on a weekday, it wasn't as crowded as normal, but we still saw lots of folks. Great views from the top and the knife ridge was spectacular.

Zion classic!  Sucess!

It's like climbing an oversized Bonzai. Chains and makeshift stairs lead the way, just watch out for the hundreds of people that will be using them with you. Angel's Landing has to be in the top 20 of classic National Park hikes.

Funny enough, this was a first date for my girlfriend and I. It turned out far better than meeting at a coffee shop.

A bit icy  Sucess!

The chains were really busy on our return from the summit, but was still a great hike with great views of the canyon. It was a bit icy in a couple sections which made it all the more hair-raising.
