Wonderful new 3rd edition of a climbing/backpacking classic 8 août 2013
Par Mark F. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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.
WOW!!! 27 avril 2015

"WOW" is about all I can say. Imagine the perfect guidebook for a mountain range. A guidebook that clearly describes ALL the trailheads and roads that access the range. A guidebook that mentions EVERY trail (it only gets into detail if there are route-finding issues, important junctions, etc.). A guidebook that splits the mountain range into its natural and logical sections, so that it's easier to find which trails and climbs come from what trailhead. A guidebook that describes virtually every mountain (sometimes by multiple approaches) and every off-trail section, interspersed with tid bits of scenery, camping, and fishing wisdom (again, only goes into detail if it needs to in order to preserve the sense of discovery). A guidebook that has a riveting 50+ page history of the range, along with at least a dozen pages describing the unique factors of hiking and camping in the range.

Imagine that perfect book. Now guess what? This is the moment when you realize that your feelings have been right all along, that this perfect book I've been describing is in fact Joe Kelsey's Climbing and Hiking in the Wind River Range, 3rd. Edition. Buy it. Buy it now.

Attached is a photo of me enjoying the superb fishing in the Wind River Range. I'm looking forward to many more adventures with the help of this amazing guidebook.
Excellent guidebook! 1 février 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 octobre 2013

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.
