Check out the "stash" photos for the Mt. Eolus route:

Eolus - NE Ridge Stash Photos

Specifically, the following photos are of the catwalk: 35-37, 41, 46, 50-51, 58, 67-70, 84, 87, 93, 94, 103, 105, 110-113, 115-116, 118-123

Hope this helps...

Thanks Bill...awesome photos of Eolus. Last year I inquired about the difficutly of Eolus with a fellow climber at Maroon Lakes overnight parking area...and he said that last block after you get past the catwalk reminded him of the old video game, "Q-bert". I can kind of see that similarity. Looks dangerously exciting.

I’m not normally one to downplay the difficulty of a route, such as when people ask about the Sawtooth or Kelso Ridge or doing the Crestones. I guess after standing on the summit block of Sunlight the catwalk didn’t leave as much of an impression on me. So if I make it sound like it’s not a big deal, it’s in the context of that group of mountains.

There are places after the catwalk where if you get off route things can get harder. Also high on Sunlight not picking the best route can make things much harder.
