[TR] Eldorado Peak- East Ridge 6/25/2006


Recommended Posts

Climb: Eldorado Peak-East Ridge


Date of Climb: 6/25/2006


Trip Report:

dewanderer and I climbed eldorado's east ridge on the 24th and 25th. there were a handful of parties up there and there is a boot track from about 5,600ft. (where the snow starts) to the summit. we brought crampons but never used them. and didnt rope up until the final exposed summit ridge we only did because we hauled the rope 6,000 ft. and would feel guilty if we didnt use it. things will change as the glacier and route melts out more.


anyway it was a great route but a grunt to get to!! go get it. the views are probably my favorite of the cascade pass area. dewanderer might post pictures when he gets them.




Gear Notes:

ice axe. didnt use crampons. .didnt use picket. barely used rope.


Approach Notes:

snow starts at about 5,500-5,700 ft. boot pack all the way to summit.
