Description

Renowned for its world-class alpine climbing, the Wind River Range is the perfect place for a 1+ day rock climbing expedition!

Situated about 100 miles southeast of Jackson Hole, the Winds (as they are colloquially known) are a classic multi-pitch trad climbing locale.

Famed routes, including the East Ridge of Wolf’s Head, are perfect challenges for intermediate level climbers. As long as you are comfortable climbing at a 5.6 level, you’ll be fine on this route. The excellent quality of the rock and amazing views are sure to blow your mind.

For advanced climbers, there are plenty of great challenges as well. Among the most popular are the south face of Wolf’s Head and Lost Temple Spire. You should be comfortable on 5.10 and 5.12 level climbs, respectively, in order to make the most out of these climbs.

If summiting the tallest mountain in the state, Gannett Peak (13,804 feet), interests you more, we can make a separate arrangement to do that. The six day trip includes carrying our gear by horseback before climbing our way to the top of the state. It should not be missed!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this exciting, challenging and scenic 1+ day rock climbing expedition to the wild Wind River Range, near Jackson Hole!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my ski mountaineering trip to Grand Teton National Park!
