Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2010


Camped with the ladies before the 1st of the Titcomb lakes, they had no climbing experience so I solo'd it the next day prepared to turn around if the glacier looked to bad. Only saw 2 crevasses aside from the 'schrund and only 1 could have really fit a body. No rope would have been necessary in these conditions. Stupendous day, clear warm. Got an early start and the crampons bit well, didn't get soft until ~ titcomb lakes, but only for a mile til I it ended and I could wander back to camp. Added Muriel peak near Bonney pass because I still felt great, fun little 4th class side trip with excellent views.

Day to hike to Titcomb Basin, day to climb, day to hike out. Long 3 days but great to get it done. Pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/state_highpoint/gannett_peak/wyoming_049.htm

Holsti97Pain, mosquitoes, and elation.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2010


We summited at 12:30 after a long, grueling hike on the Glacier Trail from the Dubois side. Snow and bergchrund were solid on the way up, but conditions got mushy on the way down after the sun got higher. Beautiful scenery and outstanding views from the summit. We were caught in the same lightning storm that injured 17 climbers on the Grand Teton on the hike out, but it did not affect us. The 5 days in the Wind Rivers proved to be my most rewarding climb ever with Dale, Brian, Dave, and Ed. HP #42.

musicman82Perfect Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2010


Climbed the Gooseneck route with Jan on a perfect day with cloud cover that kept the snow from softening up too much; had the top to myself for half an hour before being joined by my climbing partner and the east coast group of GMoney, Mutha-Z, T-mail, and Bob - congrats guys!

reboylesSnowshoes?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2010


This old skier got the first snowshoe lesson of his life this week when splattki convinced me to strap on some gear (that still looks a lot like dried beavertails) and bushwhack some 40+ miles in and out of Titcomb Basin to the summit of Gannett Peak and back.

BrookTroutLeiphart#50 (state highpoint) for me  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2002
It took me 31 years to get all of the 50 state highpoints. It took me 2 times to summit Gannett (and McKinley, and Hood, etc.). The Wind Rivers are so beautiful-I want to go back again to fish!

The Winds are unbelievably beautiful, can't wait to go back some day. Hiked in from the Elkhart Park Trailhead. Climbed via the South Couloir and descended the Gooseneck.

MlaskyGreat outing  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2001


Did this summit with a climbing group from Idaho State University. Weather was good and we made it across the berg in the absence of the snow bridge. A multi-day trip and one of my fondest climbing memories.

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2003


Very beautiful area. Went with a group on horses (aid?), which was a first for me. Wouldn't do it again though. Very icy on the way up. Long way out.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2009
Nice day, made great time. suggest climbing the 5.5 goosneck spire on way down...espec. if you have to wait for others to descend the steep snow above the shrund. It only took a few minutes and it's a small very exposed top!

Great, but long climb on day 3 of 5 day trip. No mosquitoes, great to meet the locals fishing Titcomb Lakes between their summit bids.

vanman798Titcomb Basin/Bonney Pass Route   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2009


A group of seven of us bagged this peak on August 19, 2009. It's a long approach into this peak so to conserve energy we took two days to hike into the upper Titcomb Lake, where we set up our "base" camp. From our base camp to the top of Bonney Pass took us just under 2 hours. From Bonney Pass to the bergschrund took another 2.5 hours. From the bergschrund to the peak took about 1.25 hours. Total ascent time from our base camp was 5 hours 45 minutes.

segojaClimbers Report Aug 15-18  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2009
This was a grueling hike/climb. We had much more snow than most every picture shows. I had thought this to be a fairly straight forward climb, and for the most part it was. The difficulty was in the time it took. I normally can climb/hike significantly faster than most blogs report (day climbed Kings Peak UT in 9 hours (30 miles) and it took a good 2 days to get to Titcomb Basin. Left there at 4 AM, arrived Bonney Pass at 8 AM, summitted at 2:30, return to Titcomb Lake at 8:30. Found my son had moved camp to Island Lake then had another 4.5 mile hike in the dark after having been gone for 16 hours. Luckily I saw a head lamp approaching around 9:45 and my son met me with H20 and carried my pack back to Island Lake, finally arriving around 11 AM. Longest day of my climbing career which includes a successful summit of Denali (17,000 feet to summit then back to 14,000).

Don't sell this mountain short or you will be in for a surprise.

Ropes not really needed unless you have a real secure need inside you. It certainly wouldn't hurt.
