The trail turns left and ascends up a narrow canyon named Echo Canyon. And yes, I did yell to hear my echo.

Angels Landing directly ahead across the canyon. If you follow the ridge line down from the summit to the right, the flat area is Scouts Lookout.
The guidebook calls this trail "Strenuous". I would call it steep in sections but overall "Moderate". Photo by Alice Elliott

Where does the trail go? It turns the corner and ascends into Refrigerator Canyon and up steep switchbacks named Walter's Wiggles after the trail designer.
These switchbacks climb out of Refrigerator Canyon up to Scouts Lookout
Walter's Wiggles lead down into the dark shadow area and into Refrigerator Canyon.
