The Ross Lakes Area is in the northern end of the Wind River Mountains, north of Gannett Peak and Titcomb Basin. Many mountaineering-type climbing objectives abound, such as those on Downs Mountain and Flagstone Peak. Rock climbing objectives are fewer, yet several excellent ones exist for adventurous souls looking to get away from the masses. Spider Peak, Orange Wall, and Bear's Tooth in particular offer stunning multipitch routes up to Grade IV in length.
