Wes Collins

Wes Collins has probably climbed more technical routes in the Lost River Range than any other climber. His routes include first ascents, and I believe he is one of only two people, the other being Mike Howard, to climb all of the 12ers in Winter. Another of his accomplishments was the first traverse all seven of the Lost River Range 12ers. Most recently he, along with Kevin Hansen, made the first ascent of Mount Borah’s East Face.

This photo was taken by Wes during his LRR traverse. Looking back to Borah from the summit of Idaho.
