Thirteenth of 14 14ers in 11 days, with a traverse over from Sunlight. My legs were quite tired by this point, but it was a fun hike and boulder hop.

MountainHikerCOThird Time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2008


We were fortunate with the weather. No rain the day we hiked in. The following day we started at 2:45 am. We lost the trail to Eolus for a stretch in the moonless dark after passing Twin Lakes. We got N Eolus first, then Eolus. It was then over to Sunlight. I have stood on that summit block before so this time I was content to tag the top. On the way down Sunlight we had some rain with hail. It cleared up though for our climb of Windom. We were back to camp at 11,500' at around 5:30. The goats were waiting for us!

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2008


Got a good partial snow climb in on the face and followed it up by some decent scrambling till I hit the ridge.
Windom is a good mountain! I was surprised. Great views. Climbed it after Sunlight.

chicagotransplantStandard Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


Climbed the standard route with Jamie Nellis after climbing Sunlight. Still a lot of snow in the basin between these two, but nothing unreasonable, an ice axe is useful to get to the saddle with Peak 18.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2001


This was my second climb of Windom, Sunlight & Eolus. We did N Eolus & Eolus first, then Sunlight & Windom. With Windom, my wife finished climbing all of the Colorado fourteeners. With this climb I completed climbing all the Colorado fourteeners a second time.

MountainHikerCOFrom Silverton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 1994


This was my first climb of Windom, Sunlight & Eolus. I took the train from Silverton to save a day. After getting off the afternoon train at Needleton, I hiked up to treeline and made camp. I was hiking at first light the next morning. I did Windom first, then Sunlight, N Eolus and then Eolus. It had rained at lot that week so the top of Windom had a coat of ice.

After tearing down camp I hiked most of the way to the trailhead before sundown. I then caught the morning train to Silverton and drove back to Denver that afternoon.

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. We started hiking at 4:30 AM and reached the summit of Windom Peak just as the sun was rising. The rocks on the approach were icy and slippery.

Climbed the little remaining snow on the N. face to the W. ridge. Cool summit! I cannot verify this, but apparently, my partner claims a very large block on the summit shifted when we sat on it...Don't put too much faith in the rock up there!

We got to the saddle at 11:20 when clouds were building. I wanted to snag it so I nearly ran up and got to the summit 15 minutes later!

genmai3West Ridge  Sucess!


A fun talus-hopping route. Windom may not be the most exciting peak in the area, but it is a great spot to view and contemplate C-Basin and the environs.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2006


Was steeper than it looked from below, but made for fun scrambling! Storms were going great guns early in the morning, so didn't have much time to enjoy the top at 10 am.

Windom was summit #5 on the day for me as the weather held, so the scrambling on the west ridge really wore me out.
