Mount Eolus, with an elevation of 14,083 feet, is the 32nd highest peak in the state of Colorado. It's located in the Weminuche
Wildnerness, along the Needle Range of the San Juan Mountains, and is named for the Greek god of Wind. The most common route is from the
town of Needleton, with a walk along a narrow ridge called "The Catwalk" and a class 3 scramble on the mountain's east face. The views
from the summit are well worth it, but bring an ice axe.
