This was a pretty nice hike. We did this on day 3 of a 4 day trip to the region. The Golden Cathedral is well worth it. We didn't do the rappell, but if you're game, it looks like it would be a blast. Definitely watch out for the Poison Ivy, it's everywhere. The rest of the hike is fair. We came in from the Egypt trailhead which is pretty strenuous, as it is probably at least 1000 foot elevation drop. Next time, I think I'm gonna try coming up from Early Weed Bench. Note, there are some great campsites along the Escalante near the mouth of the canyon.
