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!

That's funny! You weren't there the 1st week of August 2010 were you? Sure looks like it. :D

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)
