Mt. Eolus is located in the remote Needle Mountains, and is named for the Greek God of the Winds. The most common approach is from Needleton, which is reached by riding The Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad. The standard route to the summit includes a walk on a narrow ridge, called "The Catwalk" or "The Sidewalk in the Sky," followed by a Class 3 scramble on Eolus' east face. The views from the summit are spectacular.
