Gannett Peak…Wyoming’s highest point (13,804′), in the heart of the Wind River Range. I think it’s the most scenic area I’ve been in so far.
This climb was a lot of work, but the beauty around every corner, made this a most enjoyable climb.
We got to the trailhead late afternoon, hiked in 5+ miles to Barbara Lake, where we camped for the night. Early next morning we set off to high camp, the upper Titcomb Lakes Basin…10+ miles away. Setting up camp was a bit challenging, as the wind blew 30+ mph through the night, but was fairly calm in the morning. Climb day’s total is about 10 miles x 5500’ gain, and took about 10 hours camp to camp. After a good night’s sleep, we walked out the next day.
Fun climb, with a great team…
