Park officials say his injuries were consistent with a high-rise fall. Zion National Park and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office are still investigating the incident. “Our deepest condolences to McTague’s family and friends,” said Jeff Bradybaugh, superintendent of Zion National Park, in a press release. Angels Landing is slightly below 5,800 feet at its summit and has an elevation gain of less than 1,500 feet. The top of the trail is steep and hikers use chains to help themselves along the narrow path with cliffs on both sides. The trail closed earlier this week due to a rock slide. It reopened on Tuesday.
