1993. I really enjoyed this climb.
So surprised to see the type of people that would get into this kind of hike. Definitely super crowded but totally worth it. Continued on to do a chunk of the West Rim Trail. Zion is magical place, despite the crowds.
Crowded, but worth it. Never know when you're going to be in Zion again. Hiked to Observation Point two days later. Incredible to see the people hiking Angel's Landing from Observation Point a few thousand miles higher. Crazy perspective.
First half of the hike (to Scouts Landing) is kind of a snooze (mostly just paved switchbacks), but the ridge and views at the end make this hike worth it. Plenty of chains to keep hold of en route to the top, but you really don't need them. Fun day hike!
Started this hike with sore quads from running the Bryce Canyon half the day prior. Sore legs made for an interesting adventure up the switchbacks and wiggles. Scramble was a bit intimidating on the way out. Fantastic views from the peak. Did some splits on peaks. #splitsonpeaks
Needing to use the conveniently located bathrooms made for a quick return to Scout's Landing.
Only natural holds
It Never Gets Old This Hike! I have done it 4 times and just am blown away every time at the view! It is simply gorgeous! The ridge line is always a great time as well!
Go early in the morning to avoid the zoo! It's faster since you don't have to pass anybody on the way up. I actually found it easier avoiding the chains most of the time. Outstanding views of the canyon for the moderate effort
We short-roped our 5 and 7 year old daughters up this on a perfect spring day. They were awesome little hikers.
from Glacier after bailing out of the snowy Trans Zion Trek. Class 3 challenge style, no touching of the chains!
Second time around. Brought boyfriend and his eleven year old son. Enjoyed by all. Beautiful day at Zion.
Reminiscent of the cable route on Half-Dome, but more mellow. a fun scramble line never the less, maybe class 3 if you don't touch the chains.
A walk in the park. Glorious.
Nice way to end my morning in Zion. A few too many people for my liking but not a bad crowd considering the location/hike.
We took the standard route starting from "The Grotto" via Walters Wiggles and the Scout Lookout.
Nice route, beautiful surrounding and stunning views.
As advertised - beautiful views of Zion Canyon! An early morning start ensured no crowds - up in 1h, back in 45'.
Quite an experience walking on the thin arete...
Fun scramble. Chains make it pretty easy. Saw a condor from about ten feet away. AWESOME!
First person up the hill after snowstorm. The good news was there wasn't a soul to be seen, the bad news was the route had 4 inches of ice and snow. Got got by the whole vertigo thing and the prospect of a 1000 foot descent and took the turn back option. Fortunately no one was there to see it--took a hike of shame on the West Rim Trail instead.
Epic hike with beautiful views!
