Nice day, did it early and celebrated with 50 burpees on top
It was a good time. I especially enjoyed the panic of all the people who had never hiked or climbed at all ;)
I hope to return to Zion's soon.
started up at 6am, back by 9. loved the last stretch to the summit. got to hike in nice cool weather until the sun popped over the higher peaks when we reached the summit (instant 40 deg change). Did emerald pools the day before and the narrows the next. great time in Zion
Did Angels Landing via the trail is 2 hours 50 minutes round trip. I think 2 hours 15 minutes would be a good time for me if I pushed it. Really great views. Did the class 3 sections without touching the chains. More fun that way I think. Part of a 7 day trip to Zion and Bryce with my wife to get out of the Seattle rain.
Second time to the summit. This time I carried DayHikerJr, in addition to my backpack.
Went to the summit with Daddy, Mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa. My first class-3 route, at age 18 months. Daddy carried me, of course. But I did walk on the lower parts of the trail, near the Virgin River.
Daddy and I both love class-3 slickrock sandstone. I wasn't afraid at all on the climb, even while looking down 1500 feet to the valley floor below. I was asleep for the final stretch to the summit. Is it normal to sleep there?
Amazing view, lots of people even in this time of the year.
Love it and will come back again.
Topped it in the late afternoon with tremendous lighting and views!
stunning views, great rock formations
I was 6 months pregnant with our boy when I climbed Angel's Landing. I think my son 'enjoyed' the view as I felt him doing cartwheels in my belly when we reached the summit. A reall cool day hike - very rewarding views!
crazy in day.
I have hiked it twice. Try running up the switch back part it is tuff.
It had rained ALL DAY the day before and because of the damp rock, thick fog, uncertain weather, and our total lack of experience on sandstone we chose to climb this popular peak before attempting anything more difficult. Started before dawn and had the whole trail/summit to ourselves until the way down. Unfortunately the top was in the clouds and views were almost non-existant.
I always like the narrow section on the ridge..Fun!
Hot in the sun but worth the Hike.
I just wiggled my way to the Top.
Took my 7 year old son up on a beautiful Fall day. He absolutely loved the steep and exposed slick rock and received quite a greeting at the top from other hikers. A nice lady at the top had berries and chocolate on a silver platter!
i hiked up early in the morning, before the crowds got too out of hand--it is unbelievable how many people cram into this trail! it is, however, completely worth it--the hike is short, sweet, and the views looking out from the peak are phenomenal. if you are planning a trip, be sure to take the earliest shuttle possible if you value solitude.
IMHO the most spectacular tourist trail in the park system. I was with a lady from Texas who had never been on a mountain before. I coaxed her up each section and she made the summit. Outwardly she wasn't too happy about the "risk" to her life, but I think if the truth be known she really was proud of herself overcoming her fears.
Incredible views and exposure make this a blast to hike. I will definitely do this again next time I'm in the park. The last .5 miles with the chains were easier than they look. Not only did I not touch the chains, I only needed to use my hands 4 or 5 times total.
