Located in west central Wyoming, the Wind River Range is roughly 100 miles long. It includes many peaks, with several over 13,000 feet in elevation. The Winds include the highest Rocky Mountain peaks outside Colorado.
Many classic alpine rock routes can be found in the Wind Rivers. Many routes are relatively remote.
See Summitpost.org for additional information on the Wind River Range.
Pooping in the Winds: Please Pack Out Your Poop
Every climber, backpacker, and hiker is expected to use a wag bag and pack out your poop. Though it often feels remote, the Wind River Range is visited by more and more people each year- we are loving the area to death. Please bring multiple wag bags any time you are hiking into the Winds.
Lonesome Lake, in the Cirque of the towers, has been declared unfit to drink from, even when filtered or treated because of fecal contamination. Help keep other lakes in the Winds from this same fate of contamination by using Wag bags.
