Eolus, Sunlight, Windom on Wed. night
- If anyone would like to join us, Patrick Lilly and I plan to climb Eolus,
Sunlight and Windom Wed. night and Thurs. from the Purgatory trailhead 20
miles south of Silverton. This is a 36 mile hike/run with 10,000 ft. climb
including some class 3 and 4, basically the same hike I did in 22 hours in
2003. Photos and map here, although I am expecting more snow than you see
If you want to join us, we will meet at Charlie Thorn's house in Silverton on
Wed. evening around 6-8 PM (I haven't told Charlie yet but I'm sure it will be
OK) then head down to the trailhead after dinner and start running around
10-11 PM. We expect to reach Eolus at or shortly before sunrise.
Meanwhile I am at the Leadville hostel acclimating for Hardrock by climbing
14ers. I flew from Florida on Saturday, climbed Mt. Hope yesterday and Elbert
today. Will probably do a couple more 14ers before the Eolus group, go back
to Leadville for the marathon then back to Silverton to start my taper. Let
me know if you want to do some training climbs with me. I'm not well
acclimated yet so I'm slow.
