The whole climb I was anticipating the view from the summit, but got whited out on the knife ridge. I guess I will have to climb it again, yee ha!

This was a great climb. We camped on the Inspiration Glacier the previous night, so it took no time to get up. The knife edge snow ridge leading to the summit was both fun and beautiful.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2006
We set off on 2/19 at 7 am and after struggling with the knee-deep snow in the Eldorado Creek basin we camped at the 6200 ft saddle. We left the camp at 3:30 am and reached the summit at 7:30. Poor visibility/whiteout caught us on our descent through the Inspiration and Eldorado Glaciers. Luckily we returned to our camp and back to the Cascade River road (1 pm).

Climbed El Dorado as the final summit in a traverse from Boston Basin. The snow arete was neat and the views outstanding, but the trail down to the Cascade River Road was strenuous.

Perfect weather, low clouds made for an amazing 360 degree view of the surrounding peaks.

Got up to our camp spot at ~7600 on the rocks at 5PM. The weather was favorable, so we decided to summit that evening. Perfect light, above the clouds, amazing views all around.

Fog and clouds broke for a spectacular summit view. We could have scrambled the rocks all the way to the summit but decided to get back on the snow for the classic snow ridge.

Included an unplanned bivy 2/3 of the way up. Just dumb luck that our trip was Friday-Sunday, instead of Saturday-Monday. Our Saturday night bivy was one of the warmest & calmest I've seen in the Cascades. The next night the mountains were hit by major thunderstorms, starting forest fires that burned for months all over the range.

Great summit day. Lots of snow. East ridge was a little hairy with the knife edge and all, but no problems. One of my favorite summits. Will return to try a winter attempt.

Caught a beautiful day between smoke and an approaching storm. Great classic North Cascades views in every direction.

Set off from car at 8:30am, packing light for one day ascent. Reached summit at 4pm. Nasty weather with no view (visibility about 40 feet). Rain coming down hard. All smiles though as we set off for home with no idea of the agonizing and excruciating descent that awaited us....

You'll have to read my trip report for details.

Beautiful weather. Camped at 7500', just below the summit ridge. Great views from the camp. Even better views from the summit. That's one I'll do again. (Am I the only one that likes the boulder field?)

Got turned around twice this Spring so it was nice to bag this beast finally.
