Good shots of the final pitch on Eolus

Postby djkest » Thu Oct 06, 2011 2:18 pm

I'm afraid I was too uh, concerned with my safety and I forgot to take pictures of the climb post-catwalk on Eolus. Anyone have some good pictures they would like to share of the blocky, rocky, ledgy finale to Eolus?

I have a bunch. They all have me in them, but I think you'll find that adds to the photos.

You're welcome.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Thanks man! Nice pics. The ones looking down on you from above do well to illustrate the steepness/exposure of this section. I liked the one of you on top of Eolus curled up in the fetal position.

ETA: Nice planking on the catwalk!

I put the route in from memory...and it is approximate.

Ditto. I took like 3 pictures, all at the summit. Fortunately, my partners GF took quite a few from the catwalk, but have none on the climb itself.

These are great, thank you also ... except I don't think I'll be putting the planking photos in my scrapbook, but looks like you had fun with it :lol:

Have you checked out the Eolus Route on the site, including the Stash photos?

Also some great shots. Good lighting in your pics. For me it was socked in pretty good early and it started to clear, but not fully until I was off the summit. Thanks also.

I suppose those are OK too. :wink:

Now that I think of it, most of your site photos seem to have pretty good lighting and conditions. Did you make multilple trips on some of these peaks to get good conditions / pics?
