HP #14  Sucess!

Glacier Trail in, Bonney Pass to Titcomb Basin for the way out. With NOLS. Beautiful scenery but big snow year for the Winds and late melting so bugs were very bad. Perfect summit day, in fact it was hot and not a breath of wind. Good snow conditions, no crampons but we did rope up on Gooseneck.

There's Snow Out There!  Sucess!

Two of us launched July 9 from Elkhart Park. Put on snowshoes after Photographer's Point, and kept them on almost all the way to Titcomb Lakes. Snow was soft, additional exercise was experienced. The trail went underwater at Seneca Lake and Little Seneca Lake. We waded 2-3 streams on the way in. Apologies to the people who followed our wayward tracks!

Transitioned to crampons a little late on the way up Bonney Pass. Summited in the afternoon, soft snow. Rain on our second ascent of Bonney Pass, but no lightning. We took off the snowshoes at Seneca Lake on the way out. A couple of the snow bridges we used on the way in had collapsed on our way out, so we enjoyed some some cool water as we waded the creeks.

Mountaineering at It's Best  Sucess!

Fabulous backpacking trip and climb of Gannett Peak with Brent, Walter, Anne, Jans, Dave, and Rich. We were blessed with beautiful weather. I actually stood on the summit in a sleeveless top. Found a "Spot" on the way down and returned it to the owner.

Cloudy, yet perfect.  Sucess!

I did this solo from Titcomb, over Bonney Pass, across the Dinwoody Glacier, and across crevasse lands, rock ridges, and snowfields to the snowbridge at the Gooseneck. From there I summited and had the summit to myself. The bridge was maybe only days from collapsing -dangerous by one's self but I didn't have a choice if I wanted the summit. It was a fantastic day and one of my favorite short outings in the high country.

Another Great Mtn  Sucess!

Another one of my personal favorites. The Wind River Range is one of North America's best

Perfect Conditions  Sucess!

Early August 2010 - I lucked out and got a perfect day. I started early when the snow was firm, and clouds in the morning kept the sun from turning it to mush on the way down.

State HP #34  Sucess!

Calvin, Eva and Caj climbed the 5th highest state highpoint from the Cold Springs trailhead. Summitted in approaching bad weather but Caj managed to propose to Eva on the summit. We got married in June 2006.

glacier trail  Sucess!

Took our time to enjoy the fall colors and weather. 10 hour summit day with not a cloud in the sky. Great views all around, including the Tetons.

HP # 10  Sucess!

Climbed Gannett via the Glacier Trail with Alika and Steve in 2 nights, 3 days. Had a 14 hour summit day from camp-to-camp, which was located just above Big Meadow. Great outing, sick climb, and a huge sense of accomplishment when we returned.

Tourist Creek Day Hike  Sucess!

I climbed Gannett Peak as a day hike from the Green River Lakes trailhead, using the Tourist Creek approach. Long day (just under 21 hours), with lots of boulder hopping. The Wind Rivers are an amazing place.

Re: via Elkhart Park

You guys are incredible! I know how i felt getting back to lower titcomb, i can only imagine the pain of walking the next 15 miles out... Nice work!

Owned!  Sucess!

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.

via Elkhart Park  Sucess!

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.

Solo  Sucess!

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.

Pain, mosquitoes, and elation.  Sucess!

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.
