The summit was nice, and the gully not as bad as feared. End of a day-trip from Purgatory. Trip report.

Yeah, lots of fun doing the west ridge loop. Summit was fun too, easier than I anticipated.

Climbed this after windom. A little route finding and then the summit block. I touched the top but did not stand on it. Beautiful area

seanpeckhamfinal day of 6-day solo trip from Elk Park  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 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. This was the only day of my trip that wasn't clear in the morning; it wasn't too clear what the clouds were going to do, so even my 7:30 am summit time didn't necessarily seem too early, but the lighting for the views up there at that time of day was out of this world gorgeous! The chute was nasty, but at least it gets you up and down fast. The class 3 part was super fun, with the chimneys and the window. I watched a guy run up and down the final block, then I watched his dad slip attempting to do the same. I'd been sick and slept poorly on my trip, and felt too wobbly to safely attempt it.

The Twin Lakes (upper) basin is absolutely beautiful. Once the scree gully slog is over, this is a very enjoyable scramble. The final summit block made my mouth dry, though. I don't care what other folks think of it...my knees were shaking for 10 minutes after I got back down to the summit marker / register area. I took the "leap of faith" descent like a cat - on all fours, Spider Man style.

Started up from camp in Chicago Basin at 6:26AM with my friend Bob and reached a very tiny but rewarding peak summit boulder at 10:36. Crowded with six CMC members so had to wait a bit for "my turn". Then headed over to Windom Peak at 11:02. An absolutely beautiful day, crystal clear all-around and my 55th 14'er....Sweet!

Once you get past 13500 the climb turns into a nice scramble with a fun move onto the summit block.

Third 14er summit of the day. After summiting Sunlight, went on to climb Windom Peak. Fun scrambling/climbing up the summit tower. Nice summit block, great views.

Climbed four in one day. That makes 30 in the quest for all 58 Colorado 14ers. Great day but a pretty long day.

Fun--especially the upper scramble to the summit. Trail-workers working on lower part of route. Lots of goats too.

But didn't like that loose gully. That summit block was pretty scary! We bellied down off of it instead of doing the leap of faith.
