State Highpoint #47  Sucess!

Summited with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides via the Ink Wells/Glacier Trail route starting at the the Wind River Indian Reservation. Great trip, great people. Love this place.

Anders my prince  Sucess!

The Wind Rivers. Who knew Wyoming had so much to offer? Phenomenal hike and my first experience with crevasses. Mind: blown.

Glacier Trail  Sucess!

Camped about 0,5 miles above the last creek crossing. Weather was changing on Sept 11th, left camp about 7a, partner turned back at base of glacier, I continued solo, took standard route up the gooseneck, the snowbridge over the bergschrund was good, stayed in the rocks after the gooseneck, topped out at 1215, couldn't find the summit register. It started snowing on the way down, took the "skiers" right decent, which made for a longer but safer route, back at camp at 4p. Snowed about 2" that night.

Bonny Pass  Sucess!

Took the scenic Pole Creek Titcomb Basin approach. Got to the trailhead late afternoon, hiked in and camped at Barbara Lake. Next day hiked up pass the upper Titcomb Lakes and set up camp. Summit day left camp at 4am, tagging the summit at about 9am...and back to camp by 2pm. The conditions were perfect! Berg was closed and Bonny Pass was a mix of firm snow and rock. Walked out the next day.

Snow vs Rock  Sucess!

Success at last! Attempted last year, rushed it too much - gear drop via horse and pack in to Titcomb all in one day, then up at 3 am, stumbling around on rocks up to Bonney Pass exhausted. This year took several days to hike in, left camp at 5:30 am, a walk on the snow almost the entire way. No bergshrund, no snow bridge, no problem! With Jason, Mark, and Mark's son John.

Bergschrund fall followed by a Summit  Sucess!

I had an epic 10 meter fall into the 'schrund, followed by a self rescue. We stood on the summit by 9am. Amazing climb!

Highpoint #26  Sucess!

Solo climbing trip from the eastern approach. My first time in the Wind River Range. Epic scenery. Took the rock route to the left of the snow bridge due to "iffy" snow conditions. Alone on the summit at about 7:30 in the morning. Sunrise was legendary.

Tough solo car climb  Sucess!

Solo climbed Gannett as an ultra training route for the Bear 100. Started at 11pm from Pole Creek. Didn't see a soul until 1pm the next day on my down climb when I ran into a group of young ladies from the mountain school in Lander doing glacier training on Dinwoody. Only one on top that day. 45 mile round trip in 20 hrs 21 mins. I was spent. Extra mileage due to poor trail marking just before Photographers Point and retracing the trail. No fun doing this alone in the dark... A beautiful day do be in The Winds!

Gannett in three days  Sucess!

Beautiful trip. My friend Andy and I made the trip in 3 days and were very lucky with weather, route finding, and snow conditions. The snow bridge collapsed a few days after we were there!! It's a brute but the view from the top is unreal.

Southwest Col.  Sucess!

It is a slog, but always worth it when you get to stand on Gannett.

Beautiful Gannett   Sucess!

Being this early into the season, my partner and I were a bit worried about the conditions. Alas the most part of the trail is wet, but the summit day was beautiful. One of the best summit pushes i have ever done. All out snow climb.

Wonderful Winds  Sucess!

Started at 10:30 a.m. via the Pole Creek Trail. Photographers' Point is definitely a Kodak moment and makes a nice resting spot approximately five miles from the trailhead. Island Lake is postcard perfect. Only the big black mosquitoes ruined this paradise setting. Seeking refuge in my tent, I outwitted those blood-sucking insects and quickly squashed the few unlucky mosquitoes that foolishly followed inside. Only my tent's sheer nylon fabric protected me from the millions of mosquitoes bombing my tent like kamikaze pilots. My nylon fortress, however, would be defenseless against a grizzly bear's razor sharp claws and teeth. Billions and billions of stars lit up the night sky. I've never seen so many stars! Established second night's camp at Titcomb Basin. No skeeters here. Waking up at 2:00 a.m. to lightning over Bonney Pass, I postponed my summit attempt for a day. Joined up with a husband/wife duo on Bonney Pass at 3:00 a.m. the following morning. Together we summited and returned safety to Titcomb Basin. Worthy of a repeat.

Spectacular   Sucess!

We approached from Elkhart Park. The hike in was probably one of the prettiest hikes I have ever done hands down. The lakes are all so gorgeous and the wild flowers were out of this world. From Elkhart Park to Island Lake it took us 5.5 hrs. The hike is terrible at all. We did Fremont Peak the first day in 5 hrs from our high camp in Titcomb Basin and Gannet in 13 hrs. Descend the bergshrund later in the day is scary and should be avoided due to very very wet snow. Great day, but we were exhausted on the hike out. The bugs were terrible in the evening in Titcomb Basin. They weren't bad at all on the hike in.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Great climb in a spectacular area. Perfect weather during our 14 hour summit day from camp in upper Titcomb Basin. Gannett is a big mountain! Trip Report.

Glacier Trail  Sucess!

Long approach on glacier trail (which we chose because of the shorter summit day). We camped at Double Lake the first night (since no camping is allowed this summer at Star or Honeymoon Lakes due to blasting on the trail). A break in the weather allowed us to reach the summit from a high camp just outside the boulder field. No wind, beautiful weather (until the epic thunderstorm that rolled in later in the evening). The bergschrund is still 50% covered by a snow bridge.

Stormed Out

Just got back from an attempt up the West Couloir from Tourist Creek drainage and Green River Lakes. About 2 hours from the summit and a thunderstorm hit. We didn't have rope and didn't feel like climbing the class 4 section was smart in the rain. Will try again next year.
