This last weekend was our first Eldorado Peak (video game style) climb. At least it felt kinda like a video game, with about a dozen different, really hard levels, but we beat the final boss and got on top! Somehow from previous TR's I'd read I way underestimated this peak. It was an ass kicker. Big kudos to anyone who's ridden this awesome, remote peak.

Level 1: creek crossing
Image


Level 2: bush whacking and semi trail
Image

Level 3: talus field
Image

Level 4: thin snow-bridges covering upper talus field. This section turned out to kinda suck. While booting my foot went through and I crashed through full body, landing head first in this hole. Luckily I stopped on rocks, just above the running water below.
Image

Level 5: continuous snow. View back to cascade pass.
Image

Level 6: we found a sweet camp spot someone else had already dug out for two tents, so we stopped around 6,000 ft.
Image

Level 7: East Ridge of Eldorado - crevasses were opening in a few spots, but they were pretty obvious
Image

Level 8: the reason we came - the knife edge ridge to the top
Image

Level 9: Summit!
Image

Level 10: crawl back down the knife edge
Image

looking back at the summit, the only time all day it caught sun:
Image

Level 11: Snowboarding! into the clouds..
Image

Awesome!


I love the video game analogy. I usually call them super mario's. Same idea.



One up for you. :wink:
