Route Climbed: SW ridge from Lake Como Date Climbed: Aug 7 2001
Nice, long sustained class 3 route up solid corners at 45 deg. There is an awkward crux move around a fin just before you drop into the last gully before the summit. Descended the standard scree route and up to Blanca. It took 2 days because I was turned back yesterday by storms at 13,000 ft. and had to return to camp at 8000 ft. I camped there because I couldn't even drive a rented Jeep Cherokee up the road any higher than that, it is that rough.
