Squaretop Mountain is another of Wyoming’s famous landmarks, a truly natural feature, a gigantic monolith, shaped by glaciers, that towers over the headwaters of the spectacular Green River. It makes its grand appearance in the Bridger Wilderness, in western Wyoming’s Sublette County. Once called Roosevelt Butte, this majestic Wonder rises to a height of 11,679-feet, and the name Squaretop Mountain pretty much sums it up, a very uniquely-shaped summit with steep granite walls.
Squaretop Mountain is one of the most frequently photographed sites in Wyoming. Shutterbugs and sightseers are immediately taken by the breathtaking sight. And Squaretop Mountain is constantly changing. At sunrise, the first light catches the cliff faces, with a backdrop of the calm waters below. During the winter months, it takes on a more ominous look, when ice drapes the front of Squaretop Mountain, creating the largest single-pitch ice route in the nation.
And one would think that Squaretop Mountain would be a destination challenge for climbers, and yet, the treacherous face has never been scaled.
