Awesome route

Nice photos of the East Ridge. I want to climb it someday.

Re: Awesome route

The East Ridge is one of the "MUST DO" routes just about anywhere. Quality rock, very good line, awesome position. I loved the Cirque and will return.

Thanks for posting this. Adding it to my "to do" list now as well.

Re Thanks

If the "Cirque" wasn't over 1000 miles away, I would go every summer. It's that kind of place. One would be hard pressed to get tired of these mountains. A must see place!

Good memories

Brings back memories - did this in 2006. It's hard to look graceful while climbing this section (butt up in the air, etc.). Cheers!

Good memories

Your recent posts about Alberta Ice Climbs brought back a lot of memories from my 6 trips there in the 80s. I appreciate your effort to bring these climbs to SP and for me just remembering those beautiful places made my day. Cheers, Alois.

Re great

Hi Eike! Your profile note says you (among other places) like the Sierra. I love it too, but the Winds, man what a place. If you can, go see Wyoming and its mountains. They are magnificent. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a good picture taken on some of the best ridge climbing anywhere. Thanks for checking it out. Alois.

okay, maybe this one...

is an example of the incorrect usage of the term "4th class". :D

Looks beautiful, I'll bet it was an awesome day.

Re: okay, maybe this one...

How funny...Yeh, that one is rated 4th class for rock climbers. You know how 4th class can be different things to different people?

Seriously, the flat section is 4th class, but as soon as it steepens up, it gets a bit harder.

Wind River Mountains are really must see,there is no better backcountry climbing in the US.
