From the National Park Service,
“The route to Angels Landing involves travel along a steep, narrow ridge with support chains anchored intermittently along the route. Footing can be slippery even when the rock is dry. Unevenly surfaced steps are cut into the rock with major cliff dropoffs adjacent. Keep off when it is wet, icy or thunderstorms are in the area. Plan to be off before dark. Younger children should skip this trail; older children must be closely supervised.”
Angels Landing was AWESOME. 2.5 miles to the summit (5 miles round trip), 1488ft elevation gain. The last half mile is a traverse on a narrow ridge and scramble to the summit. There’s chains installed in the rock to both guide the route and to give you something to hold onto. You do not want to fall.
Meg was a little apprehensive about the finish going into the trip, but canyoneering earlier in the week really raised her confidence level. Once we got to the final section, she though it was no big deal. :D
If you go to Zion, you have to check it out. It was worth the plane ticket.
