I'm looking for info on climbing in the Big Horns but have found very little in teh way of a guidebook. I have read references to a Bonney hikers guide but nothing recent. I am interested in the Innominate area. Any info would be great. It seems like an amazing alpine rock climbing area and is the closest mountain range to where I live. EB

The only info I've ever found on the Big Horns is on SummitPost.
For some adventuous technical climbing I would explore this wall surrounding the Lost Twin Lakes area. Only 5-6 mi approach from Ten Sleep trail head

Lost Twin is pretty spectacular. Skinner and Piana put up several routes back there. Looks 11-ish. There is great mixed climbing on the other side of the mountain. The approach is not so nice, though. Keith Noback

The Innominate is a great climb. Worth the long approach. Send me an email if you'd like some beta photos.

Eric, I just noticed this, years later. The Big Horns are wonderful. You need to talk to Paul Kuenn, who used to guide there regularly. Doug Hemken
