Description 

Impressive Peak adjacent to Wolf's Head. (It is named after Karl Bollinger, who died in a fall on Warbonnet peak in 1953. He apparently took a leader fall, and was wearing only a European style chest harness. He is thought to have fallen out of the harness, and was found on a snow slope 1000 feet below.)


Getting There 

Approach from Shadow Lake (West aspect) or Cirque of the Towers (north and east aspects).

The route involves mildly exposed scrambling, on predominantly good quality rock. Exfoliating slabs present interesting ro...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
