I prefer the peak to the needle myself so I do think it is a great recommendation. The author also did his readers a service by telling them it is difficult and accidents are not uncommon. In other words, don't expect an Elbert type experience. Words are limited in this type of article, so elaboration is not to be expected. I do think (like Gerry Roach) that the peak is actually tougher than the Needle, but I know I'm in a minority on that ranking.

I keep forgetting to climb Humboldt. Everytime I've been into the SCL basin I get distracted by the Needle or Peak.


Understandable.

White Mountain is best forgotten. With a (gated) road to the research station on the peak, it the easiest and most boring 14'er in California.

I've been in Chicago Basin twice and have not climbed either Jupiter or North Eolus. May go back sometime to try Jupiter as a long day trip (if train schedules work). North Eolus ??; nah, for me, it's not a real 14er, just another point that is too close to its primary.

Actually, N. Eolus gives you a really nice view of Eolus and is a fun scramble up. Very worthwhile even if it's not "official".

I've never been to Chicago Basin but I once forgot where I was on top of mountain, got so high I couldn't remember where I was, what I was doing, or where I was going. I pulled out my sleeping bag and laid down until the stars came out, followed the north star all the way home.
