Route Climbed: Chicago Basin Date Climbed: Summer, early 80's
I climbed Sunlight, Windom, and Eolus with my father and brother in what must have been monsoon season. We spent five days up there and it rained during every one of them, usually right at 2:00 PM. Nice area with very rugged peaks. I should go back.

This was our second attempt at doing these three remote 14ers, the first attempt having ended in a rained out trip after camping in Chicago Basin rain for three days the September before. This time the weather was much more cooperative and we got them all climbed. Eolus (and N Eolus as well, though it's not considered a separate 14er) was wonderful fun. I just loved that "sidewalk in the sky"!
