|chugach mtn boy||Interesting|
|All this time I had thought Sublette was the 11080 peak just to the northwest (which is cl. 2 from the N & W, has an old plane wreck on the W side). But I guess that's just an unnamed peak--the map makes it clear that yours is the real Sublette. Love your trip report--brings back memories of creeping ever higher on Absaroka breccia, too scared to backtrack and just hoping there'd be an exit at the top ...|

|Actually, you're partly right. That higher peak just NW is Mount Sublette, though not all maps name it. It is also the highpoint of the Brooks Lake Cliffs, and that name probably gets more use. It's a little confusing with the two "Sublettes" there.|
Thanks for reading, by the way, and your description of climbing Absaroka breccia perfectly describes how I feel on it.

|for talking me out of this! I was looking for something short to do but ya know, loose shitty class 4-5 is not something I usually purposely seek out.|
Brooks Lake is quite beautiful though.

|So my plan worked! You see, there is really a Class 1 trail, paved at that, to the summit, but I liked it so much that I figured I had to find a way to keep it to myself.|
Seriously, though, you probably made the right call. It's a fun climb but pretty nasty in a lot of places.
What did you do in the Wyoming Range?

|We actually bailed on the Wyoming Range. A few days before we had planned to go we decided we wanted to do something closer because we were sick of driving. It will be there next time we go.|
