Ridge West From Wind River Peak. Woody Stark and I in the first week of August traversed the ridge that extends west from Wind River Peak towards East Temple; it consists of six spires. The first spire right off the shoulder of Wind River Peak was a third-class scramble, but the other five all provided at least one F6 pitch each. There was no evidence that any of the spires had been climbed before. We made two easy and enjoyable climbs not listed in the guide books, both Class 3. We climbed Wind River Peak from the headwaters of Black Joe Creek and the north face of Mitchell by following the major ledge system that diagonals up from right to left.
