Wind River Range

Some of the best alpine rock climbing the USA has to offer, this destination is in Wyoming’s Rocky Mountains.

The Wind River Range is located south of the Tetons in Wyoming. Although these two areas are geographically close in proximity, they offer different climbing culture and experiences. Based on my research, Grand Teton National Park is a smaller mountain range than the Wind River Mountains although it seems to attract a larger amount of visitors. The Tetons are only a short drive from the popular city of Jackson, WY. On the other hand, the Wind River Mountains are large and spread out. It takes a long day hike to get to the Cirque of the Towers, one of the more popular climbing areas in the range, which is the area of the Wind River Range that this proposal is based on.

Whether you wish to simply experience some of the finest wilderness rock climbing in America or you want to concentrate on improving your climbing skills, the Cirque of the Towers is an ideal location that has drawn climbers from around the world for decades. Even the name entices one to explore it’s realm. The Cirque lives up to it’s name with jagged granite spires and peaks hidden deep in the Rockies of Wyoming’s Wind River Range. As you arrive in the Cirque, climbers and hikers are awed by the sheer vertical walls and pointed towers which give the area its name. The towers surround the visitor on all sides with Lonesome Lake resting in the center.
