Ascent Trip Report

This was a great hike. The trail is pretty steep at Walter's Wiggles. The trail can be a bit dangerous in places but overall I thought the danger and 'scare factor' of this trail to be over-rated. Coming down I saw a rare California Condor with an 8-9' wingspan. Wonderful hike though. A must-do if you're in Zion.
