kronshage3Via South Zapata  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 28, 2017


Started around 5:30AM. Trail was completely dry most of the way to tree line with some spots of a couple inches of matted down snow. Not much snow above treeline. C2 certainly requires an ice axe and crampons. Ridge to summit was sketchy due to some lingering snow. Near perfect weather conditions as well. Got back around 3:30PM.

Climbed 14,345 ft. Blanca Peak with Matt today! We started our climb from 8,300 ft. on the hideous Lake Como road. Camped at Lake Como around 12,000 ft. Started our climb up Blanca around 6:30 AM and we made the summit around 10:30 AM. I summited 14,042 ft. Ellingwood Point after, 10 more to go! We then had to hike back down the Lake Como road. Matt and I agreed hiking up and down this road was the hardest part of the trip. Overall a great trip! Approx 18 miles round trip with 7000 ft of elevation gained.

In Seprtember 1997 we were trained up, camped above Como Lake ready to climb Little Bear and traverse until swirling storm clouds unleashed.

#1 7-5-17 With Brent & Lana. Interesting climb between Blanca and here. Followed mostly a cairned route below the connecting ridge. As on Blanca, we enjoyed the summit by ourselves! Fabulous views, of course. Followed a different route down to join the Blanca approach trail at 13,150. If you can imagine, a Jeep had pulled a trailer up to Blue Lakes where a group of Mountain Slavs was camped to shoot a documentary of some kind.

MissHC2 Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2017


Fun first couloir climb, good snow in the morning still. Camped at S. Zapata Lake with marmots and mosquitoes. Long hike out with heavy packs, especially for first backpacking trip in a year. Awesome weekend. F'in marmots.

CWFryLate Fall Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2015


South Face from 8800', still some nice fall colors. Ascent with MR, last portion was steep talus. No snow or ice today. Weather held despite delayed start of 9:00 AM. Good day overall. Hike back down Blanca road to the vehicle, as always, seemed too long.

Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2015


About 1:30hr coming off the top of Blanca Peak. Although a 14-er, Ellingwood Point is much shorter, looser rock, and has a 300' gendarme to go around. Stayed the ridge-line up to the register and then the lower variation shortcut down to trail back to lake Como. Long 16hr day car-to-car for 2 summits.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2015


First 14ers on the year. Little Bear via the Hourglass, the Traverse, then over to Ellingwood and down the ridge- all around the cirque! The Traverse is not nearly as bad as it's made out to be.

KieferWinter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2015


Climbed an unknown couloir (SW Couloir?) to the Southwest Ridge and followed to the summit. Very pleasing and aesthetic ridge. Spicy with the snow.

Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014


While on the summit I heard real mountaineers don't hike Gannett Peak in Wyoming in one day. I almost burst out laughing. We all do what we enjoy; everyone has a different take on the subject.

Started at 8,800' at about 2:30am and summited both Blanca and Ellingwood Point. Long but very rewarding day.

Climbed the normal route. Ice on the rocks in the early morning, but conditions improved throughout the morning. This was #54 of the Colorado #58 14ers. Fun hike.

Enjoyed the traverse over here from Blanca. It was raining the last little bit to the top, making the rocks slick, but at least the cool temperatures kept the atsmospheric electricity at bay. Opted for a "shortcut" traverse for the descent...which sucked.

After summiting Blanca Peak we did traverse to Ellingwood Point. Great views of Blanca, Little Bear, Lindsey! SDescending from this mountain is not my favorite.
