This trail MUST be done EARLY MORNING! By late morning hours, the sun is already baking and the crowds make it alot more dangerous than need be. And I recommend leaving everything in the car but a camera and a whole lot of water. Trust me, you will not regret less baggage.
All-in-all, it took my sister and I, 5 hours roundtrip to complete. This was our first hike ever (yes call us irresponsible but unfortunately being city-folk we've never gotten a chance to hike before and we just had to do it!). But even if you are a seasoned hiker, budget your time generously in anticipation of traffic and prepare to be in awe of the scenery. This is not a hike to try and rush to break a record.
Refrigerator Canyon provides respite and has pretty awesome acoustics (you can practically hear every noise made within the canyon). Walter's wiggles, though steep are quite manageable in comparison to what lies ahead. The hike up to Scout's Landing was NOT easy by any means and if you are tired when you get here, I do not recommend attempting the last 0.5m to Angel's Landing.
While climbing the spine to Angel's Landing: resist the temptation to look down. The sheer drop-off will scare you silly so its better not to look. Instead, look around! Beautiful 360 views!!
The chains are helpful but don't rely on them. Climbing like a crab is helpful where there are no chains. And please don't be nasty or reckless. There were quite a few people like that on the trail who would push or jump over people just to cut them in line. Its completely unnecessary and dangerous. But don't get me wrong, the majority of the people on the trail were very nice and helped each other get up and down safely. Before descending tricky sections, I recommend stepping to the side and waiting for traffic to clear especially if you notice you are slow. It makes it less difficult and dangerous for you and everyone else.
The view when you finally arrive is absolutely beautiful. Be sure to get a victory panorama of yourself on top ;). Budget alot of time to spend up here because you inevitably will. You will feel a great sense of accomplishment. A unique experience that cannot be missed!!
