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.

Standard Route  Sucess!

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

Route Climbed: Catwalk via Chicago Basin Date Climbed: September 23rd, 2005  Sucess!

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

Route Climbed: Chicago Lakes Basin via the Catwalk Date Climbed: 1997?  Sucess!

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

Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: August 4, 2005  Sucess!

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

Loved the climbing above the catwalk. The exposure was great and all the ledges. North Eolus was fun too.

Climbed Eolus after Sunlight and Windom on the same day. This was the hottest afternoon mountain climbing that I have experienced, although there was plenty of snow left from the unusually wet spring. Climbed with Aaron P.

Route Climbed: The Catwalk Date Climbed: August 2001  Sucess!

Our first stop after hiking in over Columbine Pass- I really enjoyed the Catwalk. Nothe Eolus was just as fun!

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: 10 Sep 2004  Sucess!

Reached a cloud encased summit without much event other than bad weather...only a small amount of snow around. The clouds parted dramatically for a few minutes for some great views and then we headed back down to the north ridge. Climbed North Eolus and came back down in a barely controlled slide when my camera started buzzing with the thunder not far behind!

Route Climbed: the catwalk Date Climbed: sept 99  Sucess!

now, the catwalk should be easy, unless you miss it and cilmb the side instead of the top. i was on the summit for the start of the first snow of the year. hasty descent, finished a fantastic 4 night stand in chicago basin, and headed fer the train.

Route Climbed: North Ridge From Chicago Basin Date Climbed: September 1, 2001  Sucess!

It felt so good to have the packs off after the trane ride and the long hike to the base camp at Chicago Basin, that Zach and I decided to get Eolus in right away. We knew that is was sketchy as late in the afternoon as it was, but decided that to get up all three mountains surrounding the basin this attempt was needed. We were making great time and were about 200 verticle feet from the top when the hail started to intensify!! I saw a more direct route that involved some easier 5th class scrambling and left Zach to head for the summit. I was about 100 yards from the summit when a couple cruized past me on the way down and warned me that "the rocks are buzzing". I realized that I should be headding down since there was only (1) second between the lightning and the thunder, but knew that I was already more exposed that I should be. I droped my pack and ran to the summit. I met Zach at about the same place that I left him and we ran most of the way back to camp. It ended up taking us right at (3) hours round trip from our camp at 11,450. Needless to say I slept well after the nearly 6,000' of climbing that day!

Route Climbed: East Couloir Date Climbed: July 13,2003  Sucess!

This would be the first of 7 San Juan 14ers over the course of a week. The goal for 7 was set so that I could complete the 14ers I had left in the San Juans. After a long backpack to upper Chicago Basin the previous day we set out to summit Eolus, N Eolus, Sunlight, and Windom in one day. The accent of Eolus was very fun taking the East Couloir route. There was just enough snow left to make this an enjoyable route.
