Fantastic hike. Highly recommend it. Angels'landing was closed so we were told to try this one. Started out early, 7, but had to wait for a while at the bus. Shady for first hour and a bit. Switch backs up to narrow Canyon. Really spectacular....More

What a hike, but what a view! Pretty straightforward hike, basically all up hill one way, and completely downhill on the way back. Very tough on the knees & toes on way down but the view at the top makes it totally worth it.

I think what you see is very similar. From observation point you are higher and looking right at Angels landing. So, from Angels Landing you have an unobstructed view to the south and you are on a pinnacle so that's a big... More
