One of my most memorable days in the mountains
#1 08-27-19 W/ Yadahzoemtn. A quick ten minutes from the saddle between Eolus and North Eolus on grippy rock. No cairns but it's because they aren't necessary. 'Twas a fun final 14er for our stay in the majestic awe-inspiring Chicago Basin. This brings the total of 14ers climbed with my climbing partner to 53.
Solo scramble after Eolus; 14er number 57
Started from Purgatory at sunset. Ran 12 miles and set up a hammock at 2am off the side of the trail. Woke at 8am and meandered my way up the last 6 miles to N. Eolus. Still lots of snow but can avoid :)
Visited North Eolus after Eolus.
Standing half way across the catwalk and too tired to deal with the final face of Eolus, we consoled ourselves by climbing up N Eolus before descending. Glad we did it, really fun and easy. Darn it, have to go back to Chi Basin to get Eolus someday! lol.
Fun climb. Excellent views.
Fantastic last summit of the trip with Kat and Dave. Excellent views fun scrambling great peak.
Great little scramble after Eolus.
nice stop along the way to eolus, but i wouldn't consider this anything more than a bump on eolus' ridge.
Climbed on the way down off Eolus, also climbed Glacier Point. Climbed with Jamie.
8/11/05 - Sidetrip while climbing Eolus from camp in Chicago Basin.
12/24/13 - Part of a week long winter trip to Chicago Basin. Fun little diversion before facing the real deal...
Climbed up North Eolus before continuing on to its more popular (and difficult) southern neighbor. This one is totally worth the extra time, in my opinion!
Fun little side trip after Eolus, how could you not do it?
I wonder why people dont climb this subpeak along with Eolus, its only about 10 minutes climb on very nice grippy solid granit.
Class 4/5 at the bottom of the route from the Peak Twelve saddle (may be possible to find an easier way around the right). Otherwise easy or nice scrambling. Counting it as a separate peak from Eolus, #24 of 31 on 10 day trip.
We climbed Eolus with my brother first, and he left his trekking poles just before the catwalk. When we came down from Eolus, his trekking poles (actually he was borrowing mine, completely new and with flowers!) were gone. There was only one couple in front of us, so we decided to chase them and get trekking poles back. They are were down, about 40 min descent for us, and then we climbed back to ascent North Eolus. So, we definitively deserved this peak :)
Did right after Eolus
