CatamountPaper-thin snowbridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2012

Catamount

Five-day climb with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides resulting in a successful summit bid on July 22 around 9 AM. Approach was via the Cold Springs trailhead leading to the Ink Wells Trail and eventually the Glacier Trail. Set up high camp at the top of the boulder field on the Dinwoody Glacier, which put us in good position for a manageable summit day. The snowbridge across the bergschrund on Gooseneck Couloir was paper-thin but everyone in my group made it across with the aid of a few Hail Marys. Outstanding day. Outstanding trip.

Finally summited after seven years of trying because of someone in climbing party either being ill prepared or getting sick. Base was at last grassy patch underneath Tower 1 of Mount Helen. Look for it if you want the closest and best camp spot before ascending Bonney pass. It has a huge overhanging boulder for protection from elements. Waited six hours for intense wind storm to pass only to have to attempt it the next day becuase it was dark by then. Went up Gooseneck. Roped up above bergshrund because that was the biggest crevasse I have seen in the Rockies. For those wondering what equipment to bring, just stick to a long ice axe for summer. Use it instead of hauling a snow stake 25 miles in. If you want more protection above the shrund there are always multiple slung belays on the West side of the couloir.

DarrenKnezekUtah Climbing Club Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011
Hiked in to Titcomb Basin with several members of the Utah Climbing Club. Spent the night and fished the next day with Jennifer and Tyson. Tyson caught a huge Golden Trout and we ate it for dinner. Climbed Gannet that night and the next day. Sick from the fish all day, but still made the summit.
Spent the night again and then climbed Fremont Peak with Jennifer the next day. Spent the night again and then hiked out. An absolutely wonderful trip!!!!!!!

Awesome mountain in an even more awesome range... It was a hard slog, not enough snow to facilitate glissading. I climbed alone and the snowbridge was pretty heady... It was only about 2 feet thick! I have never done anything quite like that in the Tetons. Amazing place, I feel lucky to live so close.

Glacier Trail in, Bonney Pass to Titcomb Basin for the way out. With NOLS. Beautiful scenery but big snow year for the Winds and late melting so bugs were very bad. Perfect summit day, in fact it was hot and not a breath of wind. Good snow conditions, no crampons but we did rope up on Gooseneck.

Two of us launched July 9 from Elkhart Park. Put on snowshoes after Photographer's Point, and kept them on almost all the way to Titcomb Lakes. Snow was soft, additional exercise was experienced. The trail went underwater at Seneca Lake and Little Seneca Lake. We waded 2-3 streams on the way in. Apologies to the people who followed our wayward tracks!

Transitioned to crampons a little late on the way up Bonney Pass. Summited in the afternoon, soft snow. Rain on our second ascent of Bonney Pass, but no lightning. We took off the snowshoes at Seneca Lake on the way out. A couple of the snow bridges we used on the way in had collapsed on our way out, so we enjoyed some some cool water as we waded the creeks.

Fabulous backpacking trip and climb of Gannett Peak with Brent, Walter, Anne, Jans, Dave, and Rich. We were blessed with beautiful weather. I actually stood on the summit in a sleeveless top. Found a "Spot" on the way down and returned it to the owner.

I did this solo from Titcomb, over Bonney Pass, across the Dinwoody Glacier, and across crevasse lands, rock ridges, and snowfields to the snowbridge at the Gooseneck. From there I summited and had the summit to myself. The bridge was maybe only days from collapsing -dangerous by one's self but I didn't have a choice if I wanted the summit. It was a fantastic day and one of my favorite short outings in the high country.

Early August 2010 - I lucked out and got a perfect day. I started early when the snow was firm, and clouds in the morning kept the sun from turning it to mush on the way down.

Calvin, Eva and Caj climbed the 5th highest state highpoint from the Cold Springs trailhead. Summitted in approaching bad weather but Caj managed to propose to Eva on the summit. We got married in June 2006.

Climbed Gannett via the Glacier Trail with Alika and Steve in 2 nights, 3 days. Had a 14 hour summit day from camp-to-camp, which was located just above Big Meadow. Great outing, sick climb, and a huge sense of accomplishment when we returned.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010
I climbed Gannett Peak as a day hike from the Green River Lakes trailhead, using the Tourist Creek approach. Long day (just under 21 hours), with lots of boulder hopping. The Wind Rivers are an amazing place.
