The fork from the Sunlight trail is very poorly marked (ie not at all). After crossing the mini creek just below Twin Lakes, you should head a bit to the right (toward Sunlight) rather than left toward Eolus.

Its pretty wet on the rock and gravel on the "ramp" leading up toward North Eolus. Be careful here because its pretty slippery and youll fall quite a ways if you do. Once you get to the top of the ramp, the route onto the ridge is poorly marked. Just pick a route. The routes on Eolus itself are also completely haphazard, and cairns are not very useful. They criss-cross all over, and again you can follow them for a while and then just pick a path as you see fit and pick up on the next line.
