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.

Perfect Climb  Sucess!

Climbed the Gooseneck route with Jan on a perfect day with cloud cover that kept the snow from softening up too much; had the top to myself for half an hour before being joined by my climbing partner and the east coast group of GMoney, Mutha-Z, T-mail, and Bob - congrats guys!

Snowshoes?  Sucess!

This old skier got the first snowshoe lesson of his life this week when splattki convinced me to strap on some gear (that still looks a lot like dried beavertails) and bushwhack some 40+ miles in and out of Titcomb Basin to the summit of Gannett Peak and back.

#50 (state highpoint) for me  Sucess!

It took me 31 years to get all of the 50 state highpoints. It took me 2 times to summit Gannett (and McKinley, and Hood, etc.). The Wind Rivers are so beautiful-I want to go back again to fish!

Five Days in Heaven  Sucess!

The Winds are unbelievably beautiful, can't wait to go back some day. Hiked in from the Elkhart Park Trailhead. Climbed via the South Couloir and descended the Gooseneck.

Titcomb Basin  Sucess!

Despite the ominous weather the climb went very well

Great outing  Sucess!

Did this summit with a climbing group from Idaho State University. Weather was good and we made it across the berg in the absence of the snow bridge. A multi-day trip and one of my fondest climbing memories.

A remote and beautiful area  Sucess!

Very beautiful area. Went with a group on horses (aid?), which was a first for me. Wouldn't do it again though. Very icy on the way up. Long way out.

Twice is nice  Sucess!

Climbed it twice, once in 1977, and again in 1982. Great climb...long day from Titcomb basin.

Gannett 9-7-2009  Sucess!

Successfully climbed Gannett Peak via the Gooseneck Pinnacle Ridge on Sep 7 2009. Glacier trail approach. Bergschrund still had snow bridge.

Via Well's Creek  Sucess!

Very painful as we ran the first 10 miles then up well's creek and summited in 11 hours, then back down. 23 hrs round trip.

std route  Sucess!

Nice day, made great time. suggest climbing the 5.5 goosneck spire on way down...espec. if you have to wait for others to descend the steep snow above the shrund. It only took a few minutes and it's a small very exposed top!

Titcomb Basin  Sucess!

Great, but long climb on day 3 of 5 day trip. No mosquitoes, great to meet the locals fishing Titcomb Lakes between their summit bids.

Titcomb Basin/Bonney Pass Route   Sucess!

A group of seven of us bagged this peak on August 19, 2009. It's a long approach into this peak so to conserve energy we took two days to hike into the upper Titcomb Lake, where we set up our "base" camp. From our base camp to the top of Bonney Pass took us just under 2 hours. From Bonney Pass to the bergschrund took another 2.5 hours. From the bergschrund to the peak took about 1.25 hours. Total ascent time from our base camp was 5 hours 45 minutes.

Climbers Report Aug 15-18  Sucess!

This was a grueling hike/climb. We had much more snow than most every picture shows. I had thought this to be a fairly straight forward climb, and for the most part it was. The difficulty was in the time it took. I normally can climb/hike significantly faster than most blogs report (day climbed Kings Peak UT in 9 hours (30 miles) and it took a good 2 days to get to Titcomb Basin. Left there at 4 AM, arrived Bonney Pass at 8 AM, summitted at 2:30, return to Titcomb Lake at 8:30. Found my son had moved camp to Island Lake then had another 4.5 mile hike in the dark after having been gone for 16 hours. Luckily I saw a head lamp approaching around 9:45 and my son met me with H20 and carried my pack back to Island Lake, finally arriving around 11 AM. Longest day of my climbing career which includes a successful summit of Denali (17,000 feet to summit then back to 14,000).

Don't sell this mountain short or you will be in for a surprise.

Ropes not really needed unless you have a real secure need inside you. It certainly wouldn't hurt.

Green River Lakes to Trail Lake  Sucess!

Great 6 night trip starting at Green River Lakes, close moose encounter at Vista Pass, over Knapsack Col to Titcomb Basin then to Bonney Pass. Camped on the large lateral moraine below Gooseneck Pinnacle just below 12000ft making an easy summit day (2 hrs 15 min from camp to summit). Bergshrund was well covered. Back out in 2 days following the Glacier Trail towards Trail Lake.
