Mountaineering on Wyoming's
Gannett Peak

July 23-29, 2017

(Alumni only) Hidden deep in the Wind River Range, above jumbled moraine and glacial ice, Gannett Peak is Wyoming’s highest peak.

Reaching this remote 13,804-foot summit requires an approach of several days, followed by the climb itself. You’ll travel on snow and ice, cross Dinwoody Glacier and work up the rock to the summit.

This expedition is a perfect opportunity to put your NOLS camping and travel skills back to work and it's a great chance to polish your mountaineering techniques. Horses will pack in the climbing gear and much of your food. Bring your camera- the vista from the "Top of Wyoming" is beyond compare.
