As part of our October 2016 holiday to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon in the USA, we walked up the classic Angels Landing trail. This trail is one of the must do walks in Zion and I can see why; it combines the beauty of the setting with the “drama” of scrambling, all in a relatively safe and accessible way. You’ll need to be reasonably fit and have a head for heights to get the most out of the walk, but it doesn’t require any particular technical skills or equipment. If you are a competent fell walker and happy doing a little light grade 1 scrambling in the UK, then I think you’ll find this walk very straightforward and really enjoyable.

You’ll see from the video that we had our camera rucksacks with us. These were full of water, not cameras though; they were the only rucksacks we had with us. We’d decided from the outset that it was a phone camera day for us!

This is the short version (14 minutes) of our video from our visit to Angels Landing in Zion National Park, Utah. I’d recommend watching this one in preference to the longer version, unless you want to see a specific part of the walk in more detail.

This is the long version (50 minutes) of our video from our visit to Angels Landing in Zion National Park, Utah. I’d recommend only watching this one in there is a particular aspect of the climb that you want to see in more detail.
