Mount Eolus and North Eolus – Colorado 14ers number 32 and 33 done.
An oh-dark-thirty start out of our campsite in the Chicago Basin, and we arrived at Twin Lakes just as the sun was starting to come up.
We had read a lot about the famous Catwalk across to Mount Eolus, but we both agreed that the routefinding to the summit was more difficult than traversing the narrow ridge.
North Eolus is a short simple climb once you return across the Catwalk to the saddle, and then you have the long slog back down.
After yesterday’s rain on the hike in, we were thankful to have dry skies and puffy picturesque clouds to enjoy a day of fun climbing!

This isn’t my video, but it’s a good perspective of the Catwalk!
