Gannett Peak, located in the Wind River Range, has the distinction of being second only to McKinley (Denali) in climbing difficulty. It is the most remote state high point--summitting Gannett Peak requires a commitment to a 40-mile round trip almost entirely on snow and ice.
The best time to climb Gannett is July, August, and early September.
The peak was named for Henry Gannett in 1906. Gannett was a mapmaker for the famous Hayden Survey which explored the west from 1872 to 1879.
