Here's Eolus from N. Eolus: Would've paid to sleep in that morning.

I don't have any pics of Eolus since it rained pretty much the whole time I was in Chicago Basin. I'd like to make another trip there when it is clear so I can see what I climbed. I know it is a beautiful area. Seeing some of these pics did remind me of my trip so I'll post one of the catwalk. That is about all I saw while climbing Eolus/N. Eolus.

Here are some shots I took of my buddy Jason climbing when we were up there in late July of this year. Hope they are helpful!

Thanks for that shot of Eolus, Doug!!!
Yes sir, I do believe that ridge leading up to the summit from the catwalk would work come winter!
(that face scares me)
