Blanca Peak is the majesty of the southern Sangre de Cristo mountains (within Colorado state), and is the 4th highest mountain in the entire state. Ellingwood Point is a close neighbour and the ridge hike between the two mountains offer a decent challenge. After some debate whether Ellingwood Point is merely a spur of Blanca (the distance is only 0,5 mile between the two peaks), Ellingwood Point is now safely considered a fourteener with sufficient rise (342 feet) and is ranked as the 42nd highest mountain in Colorado.
