Mt. Eolus sits above Needle Creek and Chicago Basin in the middle of the San Juan mountain range. It is one of the most remote 14ers in Colorado and offers a classic steep descent line......The East Couloir. This peak has seen fewer snowboard descents than most of the 14ers because of a combination of remoteness and technical difficulty.
