Windom/Sunlight on July 26th, Jupiter on the 27th, and North Eolus/Eolus on the 28th. SurfNTurf and I were able to bag the Chicago Basin Centennials in what felt like a sunless few days. Photo taken From Sunlight after tagging Windom.
Summer, albeit post-monsoon, conditions from Purgatory Flats up to Chicago Basin and then up to the summits.
Moisture and mist made for some spicy ascents depending upon the time light hit and dried up a route.
We had the summit to ourselves each time, but as we left it definitely seemed the area was getting more foot traffic.
Some small snow fields to traverse going up Windom, but that was largely due to the route we chose going up to Windom's saddle. They probably could have been avoided. We left all traction at home.
