It is one of the crowning achievements of my life.
I went in 2010. The view from there is one of the best I have seen and I have been to all the National Parks of any interest in the USA outside Alaska.
The climb up using the cables and chains on the side of that cliff, and the walk across the narrow ridges is exhilarating to say the least. It is not dangerous but it looks like it is from a distance. It is not too gruelling - I was 72 in 2010 and had not problem.
While you are in Zion, don't miss walking the narrows - you will need water-hiking gear. It is beautiful.
OH - and there is a spotted owl nest just before you get to the first narrow ridge. There were two
chicks there when I went.
And I have lost all
the photos I made of that trip. F.M.L.
