Wyoming CLIMBING/ROAD-TRIPPING TRIP REPORTS



This page provides links to my climbing trip reports in Wyoming. Wyoming is where I did my first technical climb (Overhanging Tower in the Cirque of the Towers when I was 11 years old), and since then I have made several multi-day climbing trips into the Cirque of the Towers, Deep Lake, and Tetons, cragged a few days at Devil's Tower, and enjoyed on a couple of photography road trips through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I love Wyoming's wild west feel, big sky, and availability of great multipitch routes to summits, so I will be back again and again.
