How to get there:
This interesting mountain is located in the Zion National
Park in Utah, USA. Route description:
From the trailhead the trail first goes up a fairly steep climb,
with the trail zig-zaging gently up and into a narrow canyon. At the
end of this canyon the trail turns almost 180 degrees right and climbs
by way of stairs to the top of a ridge. From here the more "exposed"
part starts. The trail is equipped with a chain in many places that
people can hold on to, however, it is perfectly possible to just depend
on the rock as you go. The trail first climbs gently then descends to
a saddle where one crosses a very narrow passage on a single rock slab with
considerable drops on either side. From here the trail climbs mostly
on the left side of the ridge to the summit of Angel's Landing. Comments:
I did this hike with my son, Pål Jørgen, 8 years old. The
view from the summit is quite good. This kind of rock formations are
not very common, but perhaps quite typical for Utah.
