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.

Digglernorth ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2012


Left truck, before/below TH, @ 7.55. Still hungover from whisky & beer consumed as a result of previous night’s fight. Last night less than ideal...

Left Huerfano TH @ 8.10. Got lost on trail leading to Lily Lake- shitty signage! Getting up ‘approach’ wall even more intimidating than it originally looked- loose rubble all over ledges, steep, exposed, & sustained. Super glad when I finally reached the ridge crest & it was over, but nervous about descending it (thought of having to go down it in a storm terrifying). Definitely the crux of the climb. I’d agree w/ Roach’s given rating of 5.2.

Remainder of ridge delightful! A few sections of 4th & easy 5th (if one wanted it), but mostly just fun 2nd & 3rd class. Summited @ 11.47. Enjoyed beautiful views (esp. of Blanca & Little Bear), & spoke briefly w/ a guy who came up the standard route. Clouds moving in, so left summit @ 12.06.

Went to Lily Lake (where wrote this), as in no particular rush to get back to camp… @ base of wall @ 13.30. Back @ TH @ 16.55, & @ car 17.10.

Woodie HopperRidge traverse from Blanca  Sucess!

Woodie Hopper

Traversed from Blanca after completing the Little Bear-Blanca traverse. Dark clouds were building, so I hiked quickly from the saddle. Long day since I started from ~8,500ft in the valley.

decided to come back and climb this. Started at about 9800 feet on the Lake Como road. Pretty straightforward. Ended up traversing over to Blanca to repeat my 1988 climb

Classic route up a beautiful ridge line. Solid and fun class III all the way from the upper lake to the summit of Ellingwood. The descent through the talus wasn't fun, but the hike was great. Not sure I want to repeat the trudge up the Como Lake road in daylight!

Great winter climb. No snow on the road until we reached the Como Lake drainage (Holbrook Creek). The snowpack on the peaks is pretty shallow, with faceted crystals covered by sun crust.

walked the Class 3 ridge from Blanca. very convenient. The views of the massif are amazing and rugged. Hung out on the summit hour and half just enjoying sunshine and others company. Great time!! Scrambled to the bottom of the basin to find the trail.
