A really excellent route. Can find fun 4th and low 5th class stuff to stay directly on the ridge. Awesome views of Little Bear, Blanca, and the traverse.

Started at the base and then went camped at Blue Lakes (much much better then Lake Como). We did Blanca and Ellingwood. We then took the ridge towards Blue Lakes from Ellingwood but then found a cool and ***easy looking*** chute that led down to Crater Lake. That was one of the scariest things I have done. There was an open mineshaft at the bottom that my friends went to explore. Bad idea but they said it was worth it, I was content outside. Crazy chute with lots and lots of loose rockfall...a huge rock sheered off and flew right by use. We were lucky to come out of that safe.

After Blanca, took the third class high traverse to Ellingwood. It was more fun than expected and made for a great multi-peak day (excluding the descent back to the base of the Lake Como road). The exposure looking down into the Huerfano drainage is incredible.

GeorgeJamesSW Ridge to Blanca Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2008


Camped at Lake Como the night before and ascended the southwest ridge on a cloudy, drizzly morning. Climbed into the cloud to gain a socked in summit, then traversed the saddle to Blanca. An exhilarating ridge climb! In my opinion the rock is fairly good; not at all crumbly, but slightly loose here and there, so be careful. Periods of light drizzle made the rock damp this day, which made me even more wary of the high exposure, but I was not to be denied my first Sangre 14er. I highly recommend this route for a competent class 3+ climber, but if exposure tends to psyche you out, you may want to choose a different path.

Did this peak solo from the 2WD parking lot. The significant elevation gain and distance made this a nice little marathon.

Hiked up and camped above Lake Como. Only saw one other person. The SW ridge was alot of fun and I highly recommend it compared to the choss of the standard route. Continued on to Blanca staying on the ridge crest.
