North America, United States, Wyoming—Wind River Range, Peak G-17 and Mount Arrowhead

Peak G-17 and Mount Arrowhead, Wind River Range. Dick Olmstead and I took advantage of the unusually fine fall weather to do two new climbs from a camp at Upper Jean Lake. On October 6 we ascended the northwest ridge of G-17 in twelve pitches. About halfway down from the summit this ridge divides into two spurs; our route started on the more northerly spur via a prominent steep dihedral. The first two leads were the most challenging; the following pitches never exceeded F6. (NCCS III, F9.) On the following day we climbed a prominent open- book on the south face of Mount Arrowhead. This is the large one to the right of the Beckey route which ends a few feet east of the summit. It was very pleasant climbing involving useful knobs and good cracks. Five long leads. (NCCS II, F7.)
