|Others in Party:||Trisha Conlon|
|Date:||Wednesday, September 3, 2008|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||14084 ft / 4292 m|
Ascent Trip ReportStandard route, from a camp at approx. 11,100 ft. in the lower end of Chicago Basin. Left camp at the hedonistic hour of 7:15 am MDT. Morning clouds continued to lift above us as we climbed. Made the summit in mostly sunny skies at 12:05 pm. Getting up onto the ridge between Eolus and N. Eolus to find the start of the Catwalk proved to be harder than finding our way on the ledges to the summit. There are, as reported, lots of cairns, and lots of possible routes, but we had no difficulty putting together a doable route which led up into the low point just south of the summit.
After re-crossing the Catwalk (fun!), I climbed Glacier Point (13,704 ft.) in a quick out-and-back. We had all day, so got back to camp just about 5 pm. Hiked out to Needleton the next day (very leisurely!).
