  • No rank, next to Mount Eolus.
  • Primary factor 55 m.

How to get there: See the entry under Mount Eolus.
Route description: The route is identical to the route on Mount Eolus until the col between Mount Eolus and North Eolus. See the description under Mount Eolus for this.
From the col, instead of heading across the "Catwalk" (to Mount Eolus), one scrambles up the opposite ridge on good rock to the summit of North Eolus.
Comments: I did this climb with Pål Jørgen, age 12. The scramble up on North Eolus is class 2+ on very good rock. We did this "extra credit" partly because we had clouds on Mount Eolus, but by the time we were down on the ridge the clouds had cleared and the sun was warm and bright.
