Started from my campsite in lower Chicago Basin at 2:30 on 8/4, made it to Twin Lakes at 4, and was atop Mt Eolus at 6:10, just in time for the sunrise. Continued on to North Eolus and Sunlight Peak, but didn’t get to Windom Peak in time to beat the quickly forming thunderclouds. It was a gorgeous morning up there, with snow firm enough to be safe with microspikes and an ice axe on the way up, and soft enough to glissade back down on.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
