Trip Report

After a delightful easy / moderate scramble up Mount Howard Douglas, it was time to add a second peak to my day. Why? Don't ask. I guess I'm still a peak bagger at heart because there's really no reason to grind up Eagle Mountain other than to claim another summit. In my case that's not entirely true. The weather kept clearing as I descended Howard Douglas and as I topped out on the ridiculously easy Eagle Mountain I got even better views from its summit than Howard Douglas', thanks to the clearing clouds.
