Description 

A prominent peak on the NW side of Titcomb Basin and the 9th highest peak in the Wind Rivers. This peak is highly visible from the west and can be seen from Pinedale.

This peak is not easy to climb and has no popular routes, so is climbed rarely. Bonney has a theory that Fremont climbed this peak instead of Fremont Peak in 1842. Having climbed both peaks I find this hard to believe as it is not nearly so easy to climb Woodrow Wilson.

This peak could also be listed under the Dinwoody Glacier area, but it is most often climbed from Titcomb Basin.

Getting There 

A long hike from the Elkhart Park trailhead.

From Upper Titcomb Basin, head up the drainage leading to the peak. Near the base of the peak, you will have to cross a small glacier, the Sphinx Glacier, with a problematic moraine to cross.The inset couloir is in the center of the face and obvious once you are close. This couloir is generally snow-filled until July and you can see the snow from Titcomb Basin. If it has melted out do not climb this route (move around to the west to the west couloir).Snap on your crampons and head straight up...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
