Cirque of the Towers

About the Climb

Perhaps the most known area in the Winds, the Cirque of the Towers boasts several of the Fifty Classic Climbs including the spectacularly exposed East Ridge of Wolf’s Head (III 5.6) as well as the elegant Northeast Face of Pingora (IV 5.8). Basecamp is made either near Big Sandy or Lonesome Lake depending on the objective, and horses are available to help haul all that heavy climbing gear into the mountains.
