Started from lower Titcomb at 7. Suffering from Altitude sickness on Bonny, I decided to press on. I made it to the summit saddle where I sat for 35 minutes contemplating defeat. I finally pushed to the summit. Coming back over bonny was gut wrenching literally. I puked 7 times. Perfect day with no real wind, and no afternoon thunderstorms.

8/07/10 Dayhike with Jake and Matt. Scott also made a strong effort but began suffering altitude probelms and elected not to go beyond Bonney Pass. In addition to sun we also had wind, rain, snow, and lightening, but we managed to squeeze out a summit.

8/15/05 Absolutely perfect weather on summit day, with not a cloud in the sky. Got a 2:25 a.m. start from camp in upper Titcomb Basin; a little too early as it turned out, since we ended up waiting just below Bonney Pass for about 30 minutes until there was enough light to study our route across the glaciers. The snow bridge over the Gooseneck Glacier bergschrund was getting thin, but enough to get the job done. Summited just before 8:00 a.m., and back to camp in upper Titcomb by 12:30, followed by much lounging around.

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

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.

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!

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.

We took two days of heavy snowshoeing to get in to Island Lake, then did Gannett in great (if a little too warm) weather. Left camp at 1am, summitted at 8:45 in slushy snow, got back to camp at 4:45. Can you say tired?

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!

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.

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.
