Trip Report

Jul 29, 2009
This was an exposed climb with plenty of Class 3 climbing beyond The Catwalk. Although The Catwalk was very exposed, the harder, exposed climbing was on the east face of Mount Eolus.

Jun 22, 2009 - Planning for Climb on Jul 29, 2009

Randy, Wild Mike and I have reservations on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for Monday, July 27, 2009.

After leaving the train at the Needleton stop, we plan to pack in to Chicago Basin on Monday, climb Windom and Sunlight Peaks on Tuesday, and climb Mount Eolus and North Eolus on Wednesday.

If we can break camp soon enough, we may pack out on Wednesday; otherwise, we will spend another night in Chicago Basin and hike out on Thursday.
