Wonderful new 3rd edition of a climbing/backpacking classic 8. August 2013
Von Mark F. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In fall 1994, I flew from Cincinnati to Salt Lake City on one leg of a business trip return flight. The flight went farther north than expected, but toward the end it had to head SW toward Salt Lake. I had a window seat and realized I would be flying over the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming! I knew of them, but had never seen them before. I looked down and in a few minutes they appeared ... towering peaks, shining lakes, and glaciers. I knew then that I had to plan a backpack trip to them. Later, upon looking at maps, I realized I had flown right over the high peaks portion of the Wind Rivers ... Gannett Peak, Fremont Peak, Titcomb Basin ... followed by Fremont Lake at the base of the range.

When I got home, I looked for Wind River guidebooks and Joe Kelsey's "Climbing and Hiking in the Wind River Mountains, 2nd Edition" was the best. I immediately purchased it and started planning. I made three separate backpack trips to the Wind River Mountains with the help of the book. I have been in areas from Titcomb Basin in the north to Cirque of the Towers in the south. I am a scrambler (nothing over Class 3), but for the hiking part and the scrambling part, the book was excellent.

When I saw that this 3rd edition was available, I purchased copies for myself and friends and can see that it is still the same excellent (and expanded/improved) guidebook. It reminds me that I need to get back to the Wind River Mountains again. Besides all the information, the photos (many with climbing routes shown) are beautiful.

One thing that Mr. Kelsey does well (that other guidebooks usually don't do) is have a subsection in each section that describes the mountain passes/cols and off-trail routes in sufficient detail, whether they are well known/designated passes or lesser known passes/cols and off-trail routes. I specifically benefited from his descriptions of Pass 11,120+ (Island Lake to Wall Lake; page 182 in the new 3rd edition), Monument Creek Route (Monument Creek to Pole Creek; page 208), and Pass 11,640+ (East Fork Valley to Bonneville Lake; page 257) ... I used all these passes/routes in my trips to the Wind Rivers and the descriptions (in the 2nd edition I used then ... and expanded in the new 3rd edition) saved valuable time/effort.

I corresponded by letter with Mr. Kelsey in 1999 and I can see that he incorporates such discussion in future work. For example, on page 157 in the new 3rd edition, he expanded the Knapsack Col discussion, saying that one should bring along an ice ax for the Twins Glacier side of Knapsack Col (this was a subject in our 1999 correspondence).

Anyone who loves backpacking and/or climbing has to experience the Wind River Mountains ... and they need the new 3rd edition of this guidebook.

The book had good description about various types of outdoor activities in the Wind River Range, and for those that need additional data, it covers general info. topics in an adequate level of detail. Overall, a recommended read for anyone plannig a trip to the area.
Excellent guidebook! 1. Februar 2015

The only Wind River hiking guide you need to buy. Excellent trail, pass, and route synopses...completely comprehensive and pairs wonderfully with the Earthwalk maps. I love this book, because it forces you to really read it by scouring for overlapping sections and notes on specific segments of a larger trail, gives details of passes, like which ones have grassy vs. talus approaches, etc...incredibly impressive and helpful. Big improvement from previous edition!

Another excellent edition 17. Oktober 2013
Von Jedidiah Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Nobody knows the Winds better than Joe, and few (Paul Horton and some others) know as much. This has been the "bible" since its first edition and it only gets better with each revision. Each edition features a little more "beta", but never too much where it would be excessive. In fact, I wish I had this edition when I got off-route on a "simple warm up" climb of War Bonnet. Nobody who walks into any part of this vast range with intentions of breaking out the climbing gear should be without it.
