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.

Meetup.com trip. We climbed Blanca first, then partly followed the ridge to Ellingwood Point. The leader brought his dog, so we had to drop down into the bowl and find and easier way up. There was no clearly marked trail, but we eventually made our way up the loose talus to the summit. Then we headed back to Lake Como, napped for a little bit before hiking the 6 miles back down the (expletive) Como Lake Road.

Ellingwood is only about an hour from the summit of Blanca, so you might as well bag it. It's easier and more solid than it looks. Camping at Lake Como is what CO is all about.

zoomloco4th classic traverse  Sucess!

tagged this as an afterthought on the best classic 14er traverse in CO. at least it looks like a peak, unlike a lot of other bumps on ridges Tr here

After Gash Ridge and Blanca, I tried continuing down Ellingwood's North Ridge, but about 13,450 feet ran into 5th class choss down-climbing. Decided to return over Ellingwood's summit and made the long walk down Lake Como Road.

Set out with hopes of doing the grand slam but had to skip Little Bear because of bad conditions in the hourglass. Good ridge climbing on the point though!

This ridge surprised me and turned out to be more fun and exciting than I thought it would be. Lots of excellent class 3 scrambling. The rock was solid and I enjoyed my solitude away from the crowded standard route. Try this ridge if you like long sustained scrambling!

Great day. Loved cruising down the ridge proper from Blanca and taking in the great scrambling. Descended the West Ridge.

By the time we got to Ellingwood from Blanca, the fog had lifted and we could actually see where we were.
