Great weather! Bit cold on summit. Made my way over to Ellingwood via just below the ridge. Magnificent views and vibes!

Meetup.com trip. We hiked in from San Luis Valley on Saturday and camped at Lake Como. We started around 4AM Sunday morning. There was a lot of loose talus higher up, so the "trail" was very hard to find. We went to the right before the saddle and dealt with some fairly easy class 3 scrambling before we made the summit. We got to the summit around 7:30 or so, I think. The clouds were already building up early in the day. Then we went over to Ellingwood Point.

Blanca was cold, windy, steep and exposed. Wind forced some of the guys in my group to crawl to the summit. Cold and wind made the stay at the summit brief.

nutaylayFirst 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2011
Did this on a 2 day trip, camped Saturday at Lake Como and hit the summit the next day, rested for about 1/2 hour while breaking down camp, and descended. On the way up got sidetracked in a couloir pretty close to Ellington and then had to take the ridge the rest of the way to Blanca. Would have liked to do another peak in the area, but facing an 8 mile descent and tired legs decided to scrap and drive back to Denver. Beautiful!

The traverse from little bear is the best CO 14 traverse, and maybe the best CO 14er route period. probably only class 4, though a bit exposed. TR up at http://zoomloco.xanga.com/732717261/purple-mountain-majesties/

Great day. Enjoyed the fun scrambling to be taken in on the ridge proper to Blanca. Skipped to the summit from there. Perfect weather, minus some low-lying clouds and mist.

Backpacked up the road to Lake Como and the day was still very clear and calm, so I headed up to tag Blanca and Ellingwood. Made it back to camp as the sun was going down.
