Here is an embarrasing confession. The night before my first hike to Angels Landing in 2019, I watched a YouTube video about the place and almost got a nervous breakdown. I literally cried and started writing a farewell letter to my parents. After my boyfriend managed to calm me down, I decided that I’d just hike as far as I felt safe. To cut things short, I made it safely to the top and back. And I did it again in November 2021. 😉 So, what is it about Angels Landing hike that makes it so iconic? Is it really that difficult? Is there an easier way to reach the summit? At last, but not the least, is it worth the trouble?
