First solo!  Sucess!

Tons of snow! Climbed the east coulior to gain the summit ridge. Looking down on the Animas River nearly 6000 feet below was really sweet!

Standard Route  Sucess!

My final 14er was a great one. The Catwalk was cool and the scramble to N. Eolus gave a good view of the whole region.

standard route  Sucess!

Climbed Eolus after N. Eolus on a superb day. The weather held all day to make it over to Glacier Pt, Sunlight, and Windom as well. The catwalk is a walk in the park and the climb of the ledges on the face was a blast.

Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed from Ruby Basin via the gully between North Eolus and Glacier Point. It was my first significant snow climb and I sure loved it. =) Once there, climbed North Eolus - Catwalk (underwhelming, actually) - and Northeast Ridge of Eolus proper. I even posed naked for a summit photo; a mighty fine day indeed.

Stunning area, and lots of rain makes me want to go back and actually have a view from the summit.

Piles of hail on the ledges to the summit made things interesting. What a place! 56th 14er!

Memorable. Mist boiling in the western gully and spilling over across the catwalk. Good view to Sunlight and Windom.

It took a little while to get to the top due to the weather, but it was well worth the trip!
