Fun little hike along with its big brother to the west.
Stunningly beautiful view on my first afternoon in Zion. It offset the ticket I got at the Wildcat trailhead for marginal parking spot.
Nice little walkup
Climbed this after summiting North Guardian Angel. Had hoped for the trifecta with West Northgate Peak, but I drank too much the night before and was pretty tired by the time we finished with this little summit.
Nice wooded hike and a short scramble to a great view point.
Linked the East and West peaks. We followed a fun scrambling route on the slickrock more to the left of the trail which went at Class 3 in a couple spots and took the main trail on the way down. We then traversed below the lookout and around to the north side of West peak.
Climbed when I was living in Springdale in 1997.
Scrambled up first thing in the morning waiting for it to warm up a little before tackling North Guardian Angel. Zipped up West Northgate Peak before hiking out.
I've hiked to both East and West Northgate Peaks on separate trips. I like the view of the Guardian Angels from here.
A pleasant hike. Great views.
