**NOTE** this is part one of a two day climb combination. Be able to do both climbs Thursday and Friday. Camping at the TH wed night is highly advised to get an early start Thursday. I am hoping to get approval for a basic climbs linkup/carry over with Sharkfin and Sahale. We would climb Eldorado on Thursday and camp at Inspiration glacier/Torment Basin Col Thursday night and then traverse over to Boston Basin Friday morning and climb Sharkfin tower and Sahale, exiting via Cascade pass Friday evening (with a car or mtb bike left at Cascade pass TH to get back 3 miles/-1500' to the Eldorado TH). If this isn't approved, this will be a 1 day climb (car to car). Followed by a 1 day of Sharkfin tower/Sahale Peak on Friday (car to car).
