A superb alpine climbing area with some of the most stunning scenery in the Winds. Home of the classic Northeast Face on Pingora and East Ridge of Wolf's Head.

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 Cirque of the Towers 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.
