Backpacking West Rim...also Slacklining
« on: January 23, 2018, 02:57:15 pm »
Hey everyone. I'm Ryan, a 4th year at University of Kansas. I'm considering doing the top-down 2 day west rim hike from Lava Point (http://www.citrusmilo.com/zionguide/westrimintro.cfm). This would allow some time at the end of the hike to branch off over to Angel's Landing as well. Wilderness permits for April become available February 5th at 10AM MST.

Anyone else interested in this hike? I'm pretty flexible about which day to do it on. Open to suggestions.

On another note, anyone into slacklining? I'll be bringing one or two lines with me, but I don't currently have any plans for where would be cool to set up at. I'd be down to work out a cool spot if anyone else is interested.

Looking forward to ending medical school right with you all.

Hi! Justin, coming from Florida.
Did you get a permit for this hike? What days were you thinking of doing it?
I will be coming for AWLS and Zion hike and was looking for a hike for the week between the two classes.

Any word on the permit? Matt from WV here. Also a slackliner who was going to bring gear out for slacklining as well.

Hey!

I'm a MS4 from Chicago. I'll be with another student, Marysia, and we're also interested in doing a top-down hike. Trying to plan things out and see where things are right now. Has anyone solidified their plans?

I have been out of the country and totally dropped the ball on a permit. Still interested in doing this. I was thinking about doing it during the backpacking week but don't currently have plans for the week before either. At this point, it might come down to when permits are still available.
