North Eolus Route Guide | Another Tough Chicago Basin 14er

If you plan to climb Mount Eolus, you might as well add North Eolus to your plans as well. It only adds about 20 minutes to your trip to climb both peaks, as they’re separated by a small saddle and just a few hundred feet. As a Chicago Basin 14er, it’s hard to reach North Eolus, so it’s best to make your time there worthwhile. Plan your adventure with my North Eolus route guide below.
