Guide to the Wyoming Mountains and Wilderness Areas
This is the definitive book on Wyoming's mountains, covering both climbing and back country routes for every range and area in the state. Orrin Bonney and his wife Lorraine were two of the earliest Wyoming mountaineers, making numerous first ascents and naming many important places, including the Cirque of the Towers. They put much of their extensive knowledge into this book, which was first published in 1960.
Each Wyoming range is given its own section, and each part includes a short history and geological overview, and information about roads and trail systems. Each mountain has an entry that includes approach information and distances, YDS ratings for all routes, and first ascent information (if known). Detailed trail maps show drainages and locations of peaks, and there are a few black and white pictures scattered throughout the book.
