I’m planning on doing the Wind River High Route next summer at the end of August. The route is around 110 miles w/ about 60% being off trail. There’s about 30k’ of gain and loss at elevations between 10k’ to 13k’. I live at sea level and will drive for 2 days to get to the start of the route.
Planning for up to 8 days with fully packed weight of ~30lb to start.
While the route has 2nd and 3rd class terrain nothing is highly technical. However there are many miles and feet of elevation gain/loss spent on talus, scree, and large boulders. Lots of trip reports complain of just being worn out by the endless boulder fields and loose talus. So I would want to train for that as well.
Which type of training plan would be the best fit for this adventure?
