Finally! After failing 2 years ago due to a storm that blew in overnight (I know, it's common in this area.), finally tagged this one. Went with Karl and Steve and camped just before the ridge in the wonderful slabby meadows. Criss-crossed paths with a group of 9 Mountaineers from Seattle throughout the day. Great views and enjoyed a Caldera Pale Ale cooled in a glacial spring afterwards at camp. And of course, the traditional bacon cheeseburger at Buffalo Run in Marblemount afterwards. Incoming storms put a crimp in our plans to climb Liberty Bell the next day, or perhaps it was the 7000+ feet of elevation and pounding that boulder field gave me..........

Climbed with a great Mountaineers group led by Ron R.. Camped in Roush Creek Basin on snow. Summitted via the East Ridge. A bergschrund near 8,400 ft but it was easily crossed on a large snowbridge. Heavy rain and poor visibility but a successful trip.

Aside from mushy snow (post holing up to knees), the route was in great shape. Fantastic views! I climbed with my friend Rod Xuereb. After Eldorado we did the south face of Klawatti.

Tagged and bagged. River crossing out of the gate was adventurous and tricky! On the way back, I think we found the proper route across. What a sufferfest though. Spectacular scenery above tree line. Set camp up high at the base of the E Ridge, then toughed out the final bit (which was pretty easy and filled with bucket steps) and returned for good night, packing out the next day.

Shirley & I climbed this as a consolation prize after failing on primary objective. Beautiful area, beautiful camping. Snow arete really made the slog worth it.

Went via the Western Arete. Brought a full Ice rack (overkill) and small rock rack (Small nuts, medium tricams, couple of Linkcams). More natural pro than I expected, bring plenty of slings!

4th time up Eldorado, this time in sub 5 hours roundtrip! My first time 4 years ago (2003) I did it in 10.5 hours rt and thought that was fast, I guess not anymore!

Very strenuous one-day climb. The views from this climb are some of the best I've seen. Route on the Eldorado/Inspiration glacier was in good shape with no major obstacles. Very slow going though on the talus fields between 3,700ft-5,300ft.

My very first alpine summit! Climbed with Alpine Ascents International. Incredible views all around. Great introduction to mountaineering although the approach was brutal for the tenderfoot. Skies were clear the entire time on the mountain except for the 30 minutes on the summit. The clouds and wind created a surreal, haunting view. Something I won't soon forget.

With a 12 person group from WAC (thanks for organizing, Andy!). Amazing weather! As we were going up to camp below the ridge, the clouds kept getting higher -- blue skies for summit day. We tried to do Klawatti in the morning and then traverse to Eldorado (in hindsight it probably would have been easier to follow the boot paths back to camp and back up to Eldorado).

Climbed the East Ridge three times, once as a day trip, another time in a traverse to Austera, and another on the way back from Dorado Needle.

Climbed on a 6-day glacier mountaineering course with Alpine Ascents. Although Day 1 was cloudy and wet turning to snow, the clouds broke late Day 2 and the remainder of the trip was clear and sunny. A spectacular climb!

Left around 7am from the parking lot and had no trouble finding a log crossing and the trail (I don't know why anyone has trouble with this). Reached snow at the first boulder field, and skinned from the second boulder field on. My partner hadn't been out the last few months due to a knee injury so he decided to call it quits when we reached the Inspiration Gl. I ran on and caught up with another party we'd been climbing on and off with during the day and summitted together with them in the clouds around three.

The upper mountain descent was nice powder, but everything below was a little sloppy. Back at the car at 6pm after the agonizing descent down the trail. Awesome area. Johannesburg is ridiculous looking.

Great peak with an exciting knife edge to finish! I lost my keys and were stuck in Marble Mount for hours. Interesting people who live there.

The ice was in excellent shape. Not another soul on the mountain besides the four in our group.

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!
