iquest4itToo awesome for words  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2009

We did this climb on the way out after spending a week on the Inspiration Glacier climbing various peaks in the area. I could write for hours on how awesome this place is, but it's too cool for words. It is my favorite place on earth...

Trip with Gimpilator, EastKing, mtn.climber, Mark Straub, and Josh Lewis. EK and mtn.c had to turn around for good reasons while the rest of us continued up under a brilliant blue sky. This was probably the most exercise I've ever had in one day (as Adam already noted, a foot of powder and punchy crust slowed us significantly).

Good weather made the day go off without a hitch. Pushed it into a one day trip as the weather report for Sunday was calling for showers. Great times.

I finally took my time on a mountain, 4 days on Eldorado and only 1 other party went above our base camp at 7800ft. A fantastic mountain with a lot less toil than I expected. The descent requires lots of knees. Bring extra.

It was a very exhausting single day push! When you put all my mistakes together, it was roughly 7,000' of elevation gain (regular route is 6,800' -- I ascended some gulleys twice). I was fortunate enough to be with a strong and careful team. Spectacularly beautiful going up. Brutally torturous going down (nasty conditions -- not what I expected).

My friend ave was severely overtired after 25 hours with no sleep had to call it at 6250 feet. I made the correct choice and stayed with him while my friend summited Eldorado! Expect another attempt soon!

12 inches of fresh snow slowed us down on this early spring ascent. We started at 3 AM and returned to the car at 9 PM for a total of 18 hours non-stop.

Had an amazing climb via the standard East Ridge approach. Few crevasses and hazards. Snow was soft enough for easy climbing. Knife-edge ridge lived up to its bill as "Himalayan like." Great climb!!

First real mountaineering experience. Steep approach but so worth it. The knife edge is exhilarating.

Car to summit in a day, then hiked out the next morning. Stunning summit ridge and stellar summit views. Would dayhike it without hesitation, were I to go again.

Nice steep uphill trail hike, 2 boulder fields, more trail, snow, up and over a ridge, up a glacier to camp. Dance party at camp. Wake up at 5:00 to rain & a white out. Delay summit plans. Wake up at 7:00 to clear skies and off we go. Uphill glacier slog, followed by a spectacular summit ridge. Thanks, Ian, Ken & Magnus!

Bill Ayers and I climbed this route to start our two weeks in the Cascades. We hiked up in the afternoon and made camp at around 5,600 ft on a nice flat area. I fell into a hole in the talus on the way and broke my trekking pole. We started for the summit at 1AM and made slow progress in the soft snow up the Eldorado Glacier. Got onto the route around 6AM and found pretty good conditions. Made it to the summit at around 10AM and then all the way down to the car. Definitely a brutal approach and descent.

Esugi and I climbed the route in a day and a half. Brought 4 screws, a picket, fluke, set of nuts, #2-.5 Camalots. Used all 4 screws, both snow pro, some small nuts and I think only the .75 but another party last week said they used more cams and no nuts. Great climb, but I don't think I'll be making that approach again anytime soon. A bit too much slogging for a bit too little climbing.

Hiked up to meadows in very hot weather. Next morning crossed the glacier and climbed the ridge to summit. The pictures of the final ridge don't do it justice. It will make you pucker but it was a great climb. This mountain rocks!

Steep approach!, after that though, everything is beautiful. Did this with a couple of good climbing buds, Brian & Steve. Lots of running water and small bivy spots east side of the ridge between 5500' & 6000'. On summit day watched a thunder & lightning storm roll past hitting us with a couple of light showers, but not enough to turn us back. It turned out to be a great summit day. The bugs were bad from 5500' back to the car. I'm not one that likes switch-backs, but that approach could use a few at least...
