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!!!

One of my crazy fourteener trips. Camped at Lake Como, which was completely covered under ice and snow. A lot of snow. Did loose the track and started snow climbing the ridge between Little Bear and Blanca Peak. Duchess was afraid on this one.

Climbed with Susan, a ranger from Great Sand Dunes NM. Walked the road and watched some amazing driving. Camped above Como Lake. We were the only ones on the peak, rare for a Colorado 14eer!

First 14er. Solo trip. Camped just above Lake Como. Made the saddle between Blanca and Ellingwood, then up the airy ridge to the summit. Incredible views. Had the mountain to myself. Wish I'd climbed Ellingwood too.

9/18/05 - From camp at Lake Como. Climbed Ellingwood's SW ridge and continued on to Blanca. Descended standard route.

6/10/06 - Returned for a one day blitz of the Lake Como Trio. Climbed Little Bear's NW face, did the classic traverse to Blanca, continued along ridge to Ellingwood & descended Ellingwood's SW ridge. This remains my favorite day in the mountains for its endless, quality scrambling.

2/9/09 - Winter ascent of the NW face from high camp at Lake Como. Amazing views!

Still gotta go back for Gash Ridge :)

Climbed with Christoph, who did his first 14er climb...about a foot of snow on the summit and the ridge and temperatures below freezing. But very fun climb!
