Jeff, not the pic you asked for, but just to show some Wind River Beauty.



BTW, we should flog you for not having a camera. :)

In a way it almost seems fitting for the Winds, no pics, no topos, but full of adventure.

Patrick, I thought it was, "a Scottish lass can blow you faster than anyone else".



Kartch, so you were there too huh.

Patrick, I WANT to be caught out on anything of importance. Better here on Supertopo than permanently printed on paper!

Thanks!

Oh, by the way, I did say something like that about Scottish storms. They can be fast and furious!

Cheers, Kartch!

Babar, let me know if you repeat the climb. I haven't heard of a second ascent, but who knows?

Thanks for posting the great pic of Hooker, Golsen. The Winds are full of great chunks of stone, aren't they?

I recall you get a glimpse of Haystack on the way in to the Cirque of Towers? I got nothin' on it.
Yes, Dru like; Billy Westbay mentioned something about climbing on Haystack. He's kinda hard to reach right now, darnit, damn...

Here's some odd's 'n ends from the Winds:

Pingora:

Jeff –
Nice story. I liked the passage where you describe “climbing in my own myth”. It reminded me of the 19th century gentleman’s code of honor. If a gentleman was insulted by another gentleman, it was expected that the person insulted would risk his own life and challenge the offender to a duel, rather than suffer the affront to his honor. Deep in the wilderness, high on a big wall and miles from any audience, a personal sense of honor and rectitude causes you to free climb a pitch at additional personal risk, rather than take the easier option and aiding it. Great illustration of the quixotic nature of our pastime and that the best climbers are the ones most smitten by the romance of climbing.

Steve, Steve, Steve,

Good mourning Ron!
Yeah, I was there in August. Just did a couple of the tourist lines though. Wolfs head and Pingora. Wolf head is as real as 5.7 gets. Great climbing!

Steve-

I can't see your photos. Any idea why?

Also, I've attempted to paste a photo of the route into my original post. If it works, it's thanks to clear instructions from Anders.
