Ascent Trip Report

Awesome Trip! This was a "Summit For Someone" trip with Backpacker Magazine and Big City Mountaineers. This was my first real mountaineering experience. We had perfect weather and an awesome guide staff from Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. Only half of our 6 person party summited. It was an incredible adventure and I look forward to returning to the Winds and bagging this summit again along with some other classic Wind River peaks!
