Coming this Summer! Gannett Peak – Highpoint of Wyoming

At 13,804 feet, Gannett Peak towers over the Grand Teton by a whopping 84 feet. Gannett Peak is the most remote of the high-points in the lower 48, and second, only to to Denali in the 50 state high-points.  It has five rugged glaciers on its flank, the largest glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains. It is remote and considered an exciting alpine mountaineering challenge due to its inaccessibility and moderate difficulty. Ropes, ice axes, and crampons are usually required for this trip.

We are still finalizing details, but it looks like either Late June or Early August for the 6 day trip.

Send Gary an email - gary@alpine-inspirations.com for additional details as they develop.
