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.

Saw the same crowd from Little Bear, which we had all climbed the prior sunny day. But no views that morning!

Drove by Jeep to Lake Como. Pitched our tent next to some friends and then climbed Blanca Peak the next day. It was a quick hike - 5 hrs roundtrip from Lake Como. The vistas are stunning. Can't wait to return for Little Bear and Ellingwood.

Some day I'd like to return due to foggy low visibility conditions. I don't remember exactly when I climbed Blanca, but it was probably around 1997 or so.

Slow day for me, intended to do Little Bear but after feeling sick all morning just made the stroll up Blanca. Beautiful area, I'd recommend camping above Lake Como if you want more quiet and privacy.

I went up Blanca first and traversed across to Ellingwood. I didn't think Blanca was quite as hard as I expected. Weather was great and the views were beautiful. Traverse was easy Class 3 and enjoyable.

Before I knew how to "go light" 50lbs pack. Deep powder on approach, postholing with snowshoes following an old skier track. -40F low. Nice consolidated snow higher up, not too cold on summit day in the sun.

Climbed the NW Face on Little Bear and traversed to Blanca under stellar skies. One of the best routes I've ever done.

Hiked up to Blue Lakes and then did Blanca and Ellingwood. Great day and amazing views. Those were 14'ers number 9 and 10 this summer and were by far the coolest of them all. Camp at Blue Lakes instead of Como!!!
