This will be a very strenuous one-day climb. A high level of fitness is required.  The knife-edge ridge at the summit of Eldorado Peak is very exposed.  Do not sign up for this climb if this is a concern for you. 

We'll get a very early alpine start so  sleeping at the TH on Thursday  night is highly recommended.
