Beautiful summit. What a view! Scrambling was definitely easier than expected, but still some great exposure. Tripped on the catwalk... an exciting moment.

What a great mountain! The catwalk and ledges were just good fun. Class III? Maybe if you are on route the whole time.

Hiked in via Pugatory Creek Trail and it rained the whole time in. We camped at the really nice shelter close to the river instead of hiking all the way into Chicago Basin. We missed our alarm the next morning and got a 2 hour late start. We ended up only doing Eulos and North Eulos. If you can afford and extra 2.5 hours, do the hike in! Its not that bad.

It's a fun class 3-4 scramble if you stay near the ridge-crest. It was also my introduction to the nasty goats on a day-trip from Purgatory. Trip report.

I started on the regular route but joined the ridge about half the way up. Solid fun 3rd on the ridge.

Reminded me more of North Maroon than of the easy talus heap I was expecting.

boisedocExciting scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2011


I thought the east face made for good scrambling. It required a fair amount of route finding to find the easiest route. As others have noted, there are too many cairns on the face that complicates things. Great views of pidgeon peak

seanpeckhamDay 5 of 6-day solo trip from Elk Park to Needleton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2011


I spent 4 incredible and wet days backpacking around solo with a tiny tarp and a bivy sac (at times hooking up with some great people I encountered, but at other times having whole drainages to myself) from Elk Park to Chicago Basin, climbed Eolus on day 5, and on day 6 did Sunlight and Windom and went down to the train, which was delayed indefinitely (but turned out to only be a couple hours) due to two rock/mudslides. Eolus intimidated me when I first saw it from Columbine Pass, partly because I had been sick and slept poorly on my trip, but that just made it worth travelling all that way to do it. I loved the climb, the scrambling and routefinding were a good match for my abilities or lack thereof. The views were some of the best I've ever had.

Climbed with my dad. This was his first 14er. Catwalk great exposure. Ledges a bit loose and spooky, with too many cairns. All-and-all a great trip. Lots of mountain goats!

The approach up the upper basin after leaving Twin Lakes was a little messy (wet gravel, cruddy snow) but once we got above the initial ledges to the Catwalk...MAN, I love this mountain. From the Catwalk on, this peak is non-stop fun, views and beauty. One of our party celebrated his 54th Fourteener on this summit. We all hugged him and almost knocked him off the top! What a great day.

myrone3rd Peak of the Chicago Basin 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2011


Started up from camp in the Chicago Basin with my friend Bob at 6:02AM. Reached an empty summit at 9:32 after joining a young couple (Eric & Whitney) near the "catwalk" with windy, foreboding skies moving-in. Stayed only briefly before heading over to N. Eolus Peak at 9:45. My 57th 14'er.........Sweet!

Great climb with John Little and friends, but had a close call with a rock giving on me on the way down from the summit.

Nice morning from a high camp in Chicago Basin. Catwalk was fun, after that it's loose.

Climbed Mount Eolus from the camp in the upper Chicago Basin. From the saddle, climbed directly to the summit staying on the NE ridge crest. Continued on to Sunlight and Windom Peaks. Gorgeous weather, fun scramble, great views!

Climbed after finishing Sunlight, Windom, North Eolus. Weather was not good. Low clouds, moist conditions made route finding a little difficult. Finally located the summit. All of the cairnes a little confusing. Lots of exposure makes this a little nerve racking especially when the conditions are damp. #33 of #58.
