Bollinger Peak

Wyoming > Wind River Range > Cirque of the Towers

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).
