Just finished the entire set of trip reports and it was amazing. Thanks for taking the time to document and upload pictures!!

The Winds have been tempting me for some time... it may be time to get serious about planning a trip. I may send you a message with some general questions about what area to begin planning a trip around.

Thanks for taking the time to put these together; as above its strongly increased my desire to return to the Winds - maybe in a couple of years.

I've followed and plotted(ish) these routes on CalTopo.
