Awesome climb up standard gooseneck route. Actually wondered over a little to dinwoody glacier and saw quite the large crevasse. Low Snow year so wasn't quite what i was hoping but still had a blast. GREAT AREA.

Elkhart Park TH to Island Lake to upper Titcomb Basin. Camped at base of Mt. Helen (several awesome lines up Helen....next time).....2am departure over bonney pass for the team....team summitted at 8am (without me, as I hadn't slept in 4+ days and couldn't bear the thought of bonking on the Dinwoody and spoiling anyone's summit attempt).....the Winds are perhaps the most beautiful range in the lower 48.....bluebird days....unforgetable!!!!

hockeymanAnother solo trip  Sucess!


Hiked in off the reservation. Dinwoody route. Very intimidating as a solo. It was along way in and wiht no one else a accident would have been deadly. Full gear was used and required. Lots of snow. This was my first big mountain solo. Was living in Lander at the time.

patascentGooseneck Glacier to the Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2006


Camped on top of Bonney Pass...beautiful star filled sky and not a single mosquitoe. Left for the summit at 4 a.m. No snow until we reached the glacier. Made our way to the Gooseneck pinacle and dropped about 10 feet into the Bergshrund. Fun climb/ice traverse on the way out. Two steep snow pitches and then mostly rock scrambling to the summit. We rapelled the steep snow and the bergshrund on the way down, made our way across the glacier, up Bonney pass, broke down camp, descend Bonney pass and hiked out as far as we could until it got dark...what a day. Wind Rivers are amazing. Can't wait to go back without the climbing gear.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2004


One of my favorite climbs of all time! We started from the Green River Lakes TH and followed the river past Squaretop and then up a drainage. We contoured around a few lakes and eventually hit the Minor Glacier which is easily crossed w/o glacier gear. Then it was about 1500 ft of class 3/4 and short sections of easy class 5. Wonderful climb!

mtnhxcRoute Climbed: Gooseneck Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2005


I climbed Gannett during the third week of my NOLS course after comming up the Grasshopper and Gannett Glaciers from the Orange Wall. We camped at about 11,250' directly below the Grasshopper Glacier, and climbed the glacier and the ridge to the summitt the next day. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing, especially the sunrise from about halfway up the Gooseneck Glacier. We left the next day via Bonney Pass and Knapsack Col before camping about a mile west of Peak Lake. Excellent climbing and one of the most memorable parts of my course.

PellucidWombatNice Dayhike via Titcomb Basin-Gooseneck Pinnacle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2006


I had a twisted plan to hike this peak in less than 24 hrs RT from the Pole Creek Trailhead and on August 21st I carried out this plan with my friend Joel Wilson. We started out extremely sleep deprived, which slowed us down, but we still managed to complete the hike in 23:36! See our trip report for more info and photos.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1990


Number 36 of my 49 state high points, number 35 for Vanessa. We went with a group of 8 we hooked up with via Highpointers. We sat out a snow squall in a bergschrund on the way up, and waited out a thunderstorm above the Gooseneck Pinnacle on the descent. But what a wonderful adventure. We did a 5-day trip from the north (Debois) side, and had a packer bring in our climbing gear.

BobKApproach via Glacier Trail, climbed via Dinwoody and Gooseneck Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2006


We approached using llamas to carry most gear - great experience. Climb was enjoyable for the variety of rock, snow and glacier travel. Had snow on summit which turned to rain on descent directly down the Gooseneck Glacier. My partner slipped near the bottom and injured his back making the walk out painful. Great hospital in Lander if you need it.

Long approach, but it's more than worth it. Beautiful peak in a beautiful mountain range.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2006


Started from Elkhart went up Titcomb. Summited on the northface. Had to leave the glacier as a crevasse had openened up. Covered the last 700 or so verticle feet on rock. Took about 13 hours largly due to slowness on my part.

Classic and challenging climb. My partner and I were the only ones on the mountain that day. This is my 16th state highpoint and the most challenging so far, mostly due to the long approach.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2006


Used the Elkhart Park Trailhead to Titcomb Basin the first day. Summitted without use of ropes or protection on day 2 and out on day 3. The glacier was mostly closed up and the steep snow was stable and great for steps. The most challenging part was the approach with a large pack. Save some weight and leave the pickets, ropes, harness, ice-screws home if your going in July and have some experience.

Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2006


6 day trip from the Dubois side with 4 other guys. We summitted on the fourth day. The route to the top was much more technical than I had expected. Gannett makes Rainier feel like a walk in the park. However, it was a very rewarding climb with a superb scenery. TR is at http://www.iamlubos.com/highpoints/gannett/gannett.htm

NanitaDFrom Trail Lakes Ranch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 1993


The "Woolly Bully" expedition hiked the Glacier trail by Double Lake, Star Lake, and Honeymoon Lake. On our second day we were excited when we finally glimpsed Gannett and our route up the Gooseneck Glacier. The next day we had a magnicificant day for our climb. Returning to our camp by about 4:00 we celebrated with backcounty "Yukaritas" made with limeade, Y.J. (Yukon Jack) and clean glacier snow. We mixed some "decent helper" made of Y.J. and wildberry punch to help us down boogie on down the unending switchbacks to the Trail Ranch Lakes trailhead.

nogginRewarding Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2005


We spent two days hiking in to finally camp above the Titcomb Lakes. Haven't seen more rewarding sights than viewing Gannet for the first time once topping Bonney Pass. There was still plenty of snow in Titcomb Basin which made going up Bonney Pass much easier I think (no scree). There was no bergschrund, and gliassading down Gooseneck Glacier was fun. By having snow over Bonney Pass we (bc44caesar) could just glissade down it as opposed to a brutal walk down. I'd reccomend this time of year. However the mosquitoes below treeline were brutal (bug spray is essential).

Rufio the Merciful

Very smooth trip,,,Camped on pass two nights. Experienced a nasty storm on the second evening after summitting.

Got a 4AM start,,,on summit before 10. Snow conditions were agreeable though the edges of everyone's favorite snow bridge were buckling by our descent. Overall, I think it was pretty solid.

I took a digital video camera up the mountain and got some great footage,,,with some editing and musical additions, a documentary of great personal value was made. The summit footage is a great escape down on 'civilized' soil.

Mosquitoes were as bad as everyone says. They were worse in fact. My crewmates looked like Pig Pen with that relentless black cloud buzzing around their heads.

Honestly, the approach was as rewarding as the summit. Simply beautiful.
