Comments: Another very sporting variation that may not have been done yet is to climb the north face "right gully," traverse to the Cathedral Spire col, and cut over to the base of the steep part of the Eliot Headwall. I spied this variation possibility a couple years ago when I did the right gully, and it's very plausible.

Comments: This looks like the perfect route... hard, long, but with bomber ice and some good solid rests.

Comments: I would just point out the fact that the route does NOT follow the north shoulder of the summit pinnacle in summer conditions - unless it's completely iced/snowed over, the shoulder is suicidal rock climbing. Instead, traverse across the west of the pinnacle to a 4th class ramp running up the middle of the west face. There should be no 5th classing on the pinnacle- the rock is fucking horrible.

Comments: Castle Crags is to the south of the Reid Headwall lines. It begins at iRock saddle, follows the craggy ridge of the extreme western (southern) rim, and tops out on the upper west crater rim.

Comments: What elevation do most people get off the Coopspur and drop onto Eliot? Looks like there's currently (late Feb '12) a steep ramp connecting the spur to the glacier at 9,000'... anyone ever dropped down there?
