Angel’s Landing is arguably the best-known landmark in southern Utah’s Zion National Park. It’s a striking mountain with a few dead vertical sides nearly a thousand feet tall. There is a trail that goes up the side, but these pics are from an ascent Lee and I did of the route Prodigal Sun (V 5.8 C2, 900′) back in 2009. I could have sworn that I’d posted these photos here already, but better late than never, right?
We drove down to Zion from Provo, climbed and fixed a couple pitches, camped outside of the park, and then climbed the rest of the route the next day. I led all the pitches and the ascent went smoothly. We had a great time.
Most of the photos below aren’t amazing, but they give a good idea of what the route is like.
