The state of Wyoming has 35 ranked peaks over 13,000 feet; the vast majority (31) of these mountains are in the spectacular Wind River Range, and the others are located in the northwestern quadrant of the state in the Teton (1), Absaroka (1), and Big Horn (2) ranges. Most of the 13ers are tightly bunched together and are located in the Gannett Peak (19), Downs Mountain (2), Fremont Peak North (4), and Fremont Peak South (5) quadrangles, which are adjacent to each other in the heart of the Winds. Wind River Peak is located alone near the southern end of the Wind River Range. Many of these summits are remote and challenging technical climbs, and are climbed infrequently when compared to the 14ers in Colorado. In fact, there is no record online of anyone who has completed all of these peaks; Steve Sheriff has climbed 18 of the peaks on this list, as listed on Peakbagger.com, and Teresa Gergen is leading on the Lists of John site with 10 peaks.

Thanks to John Kirk for uploading more of his fantastic pictures for this page, and to his Lists of John website for the elevation, prominence, and YDS numbers. This list includes only peaks with 300 feet of prominence; The Sphinx and Spearhead Pinnacle are soft-ranked on the Peakbagger site, but not on the LoJ site; the Peakbagger page also includes the unranked Wyoming 13ers, but it does not include Peak 13180. See this page for more information.
