Steve Bechtel has lived in WY most of his life and has established 100's of routes in the region. From this wealth of experience Steve has been able to put together a great guidebook. By using maps, photos and text, first time visitors to the climbing areas are given precise details about vehicle access, trailheads and the climbing routes themselves.Cirque of the Towers & Deep Lake. A Select Guide to the Wind Rivers' Best Rock Climbing also contains great climbing action photos to get you inspired and the guide itself is small enough to easily fit in the top pocket of your climbing pack.
The Cirque of the Towers area contains two of the "50 classic routes in North America" and as a result is a very popular destination area for alpine climbers. The only other guide to the area, Climbing and Hiking in the Wind River Mountains is great guidebook, but being a comprehensive guide to the entire Wind River Range, it lacks detail. As a result recreational use is concentrated in a small area around the "classic" routes. The Cirque of the Towers & Deep Lake. A Select Guide to the Wind Rivers' Best Rock Climbing gives climbers other excellent climbing options in the region which will reduce the potential for crowding on the routes as well as the camping impact and lead to more of a wilderness experience for all.
