Wolf's Head From Pingora

  • This photo is one of my most viewed photos. It was taking while climbing in Wyoming's Wind River Range. There was one fall that day on a 1,300 foot wall. The fall was about 60 feet and without any injuries. It was a clean fall on a vertical section of rock with no ledges to hit.

One of your best shots. It reminds me of Sharkfin between El Dorado and Boston Peak

This is incredible!! You're making me very excited for my week long backpack in the Winds next August (although I won't be getting into places like this) I'd be terrified. I didn't know you'd been here...I guess the climbing is amazing just as the scenery is.

Greq,

Pingora is a classic! I would love to repeat this climb some day. The wall is ~1300 feet high and the party the day before did not finish. They spent the night on the wall and there was a rain/snow storm. They were in a pretty bad situation low on food and water. We had no food, but were able to help them with water.

This phot has Wolf's Head behind us and it is part of the descent route.

This must have been memorable. It is such a knife edge ridge! Still amazing to see the second viewing.!!!!

I arrive here via a comment and link from our mutual friend Stacy Metcalf!

Extreme climbing if you ask me..but what an incredible geological structure, not to mention the amazing photo!! I guess some one is bound to have climbed to the top of that needle-like pinnacle!

I'm impressed to say the least..

These awesome images are unique!

Cheers!

Jim

AXOTA,

  • Thank you for stopping and commenting.
  • My climbing partner and I climbed both peaks. the one in the background is call Wolf's Head and looks more difficult from this angle than the actual climb. The peak we are one is more difficult to scale and the rock wall is about 1300 vertical feet. This is a place I have visit just once, and I wish I could be there again.

Jim, Happy New Year and happy photos too.
