Started 8650' day before. Camped at Lake Como. Thunder storm (with hail) ruined dinner time. Watched the fog roll in on the early morning start. Beautiful views from summit when fog allowed it. Great trip.

My dates are all wrong probably but I forgot to sign the log last year. What an awesome climb with beautiful exposure though! Perfect weather too.

Long day. Hiked from close to Hwy 150 to peak. Endless rocks on the road, so wear solid footwear. Hiked with MCR. Beautiful scenery and ultimately well worth the effort.

Walked the road as we did not have a capable 4X4 and it was a very long day, but worth it.

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

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


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.

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/
