tomlaurenWindom - Sunlight - Eolus in a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2005


From camp in Chicago Basin, climbed the Northwest Face of Windom Peak, the South Slopes up to Sunlight Peak, and then the Northeast Ridge of Mount Eolus with my friend Jason. I didn't think that the jump/scramble to the summit of Sunlight Peak was that bad, but I also have a rock climbing background.

Beautiful day. The summit block in your back yard would be fun to play on. The summit block two hundred feet in the air is a bit scary.

summit block is fun, but having a lightning and snow storm move in wasn't so fun

Camped at 11,000 feet. This was the best peak I've done yet! The top 200 feet was fun and the move onto the summit block was great!

Fantastic place--all it was made out to be. Too bad the monsoon weather forced us to descend before we really wanted to leave.

Spectacular summit! The S.Slopes are a bit grungy, but well worth the final 100 feet.

My favorite climb so far. The last 20 feet is the coolest! The snow conditions were great as well. I wish the exposure got to me more...

I was not looking forward to the climb of the summit block, so I didn't think about it for too long. I basically bear hugged the summit, spun around and hopped back down. I kept one hand on the block I hopped off of over the gap, but don't think about it for too long!

Dustiano and I got off to a late start leaving Chicago Basin at 9:15am. We were tired and sunburned by the time we got to the summit. A word of caution, once you leave the trees in Chicago Basin, there is no shade until you return. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and our late start was rewarded with endless views and perfect sunshine.

What a thrill! Summit move was a bit easier than I expected but still plenty exposed. I was able to reach across the gap with both hands and one foot and use my other foot to push myself across. The jump/hop back is far worse because the landing is tougher. Amazing views from the summit. We were the only group on Sunlight for the whole climb.

There is one section where routefinding is tough at the very end. You have to find a crack which leads to a higher ledge and the alcove that Roach mentions. The crack is probably the hardest part of the climb.

My worst hiking mistake ever was not bailing on this mountain for another day. The summit rocks buzzed with electricity from the nearby storm; I'm frankly a bit ashamed to say I climbed it, given my stupidity. I'm grateful and lucky to be home safe and able to type this.
