Route Climbed: Chicago Basin Date Climbed: Summer, early 80's  Sucess!

I climbed Sunlight, Windom, and Eolus with my father and brother in what must have been monsoon season. We spent five days up there and it rained during every one of them, usually right at 2:00 PM. Nice area with very rugged peaks. I should go back.

Route Climbed: Standard Date Climbed: September 1, 2001  Sucess!

Started in the dark so we were the first ones on the mountain. Back to camp by 10:30 am - way cool. Weather held but it spit rain/snow at us even though we were up there very early in am.

Route Climbed: Standard route from Chicago Basin Date Climbed: 8-18-94  Sucess!

This was our second attempt at doing these three remote 14ers, the first attempt having ended in a rained out trip after camping in Chicago Basin rain for three days the September before. This time the weather was much more cooperative and we got them all climbed. Eolus (and N Eolus as well, though it's not considered a separate 14er) was wonderful fun. I just loved that "sidewalk in the sky"!

Route Climbed: Chicago Basin/Standard Date Climbed: 9/1/01  Sucess!

Beautiful hike...get up and down off of that summit ridge as soon as you can come quickly, and you can't see it until you reach the upper ridge near 14,000'.
