Deep Lake Area Rock Climbing
A beautiful area that is near Cirque of the Towers so it's a good addition if you have the time. There are several peaks for climbing, but it seems that Haystack has the most routes.
Probably less crowded than the cirque if you want seclusion. Mosquitoes can be nasty--bring some repellant.
Approach as for the Cirque, but at Big Sandy Lake, keep going along the NE side of the lake to a trail that heads up toward Clear Lake and then Deep Lake. The camping at Clear Lake offers some nice trees and looks preferrable to the Deep Lake site that is above treeline.

hike up to the base of the spire on the southwest side of it by following a system of grassy ledges from below. the route is described in the "Hiking and climbing in the Winds...." very well (plus the sense of adventure). The route follows the ridge and the face to the right of it all the way up. One crux is on the second pitch and the other crux is up high, before the chimney pitch, depending on what path you choose on pitch 5/6. you can get down in 5 raps with two ropes (highly recommended)...[more] Browse More Classics in Wyoming

"Approach as for the Cirque, but at Big Sandy Lake, keep going along the NE side of the lake to a trail that heads up toward Clear Lake and then Deep Lake."
The trail signage for this is now down/inadequate and is causing some folks to wind up on the Black Joe Lake trail. After the creek crossing, the major developed trail wraps around and up to Black Joe. For Deep Lake, either hug the creek bank or locate an unmarked steep downhill trail within about 100 feet. Either will take you to more trail along Big Sandy's shore and into the correct drainage.
