Really neat 1,000 foot class 2/3 ridgeline to summit. Traversed over to Blanca's summit also. Great views of northern Sangre's and Blanca's N face. Awesome yellow fall colors. Very scenic area.

What an awesome one-day solo ascent of Blanca and Ellingwood. Parked about one mile past the trailhead and began hiking at 7am. Summitted Blanca at 11:45am, the last 100 feet was a little more time consuming because of fresh ice and snow. Stayed about 150 to 200 feet below the ridge while traversing to Ellingwood. No snow or ice on Ellingwood. Some route finding issues on the way down Ellingwood. Hiked out and returned to the truck by 6pm. I love fourteeners in the Fall!

Easy Class 3 with one fun, slightly tricky notch to cross if you stick to or very near the ridge

Hiked up to Lake Como from 8800', set up camp, and then continued on to the Southwest Ridge. I took a fairly direct path from the unnamed lake to the low point of the ridge. The ridge was exciting - it looks in numerous places to be harder than 3rd class - but there is always an easy way around any difficulties. One of the best 3rd class routes I've done!

Climb this mountain on its own via the SW ridge. One of the best class 3 routes on Colorado's 14ers.

umbra alta

Climbed this as the third peak in Little Bear/Blanca/Ellingwood enchainment. Stuck to the ridge 90 percent of the way to avoid miserable talus slope. Seemed logical after doing Little Bear/Blanca ridge. Also descended Ellingwood's south ridge for continued 3rd and 4th class climbing. A banner day.

Descended from Blanca and traversed to the route. A cool sunny day but back in Texas it was 110 deg. I was glad to be on Ellingwood.

This route gets an early sunhit ... snow was softening up by the time I made it onto the SW face. Stuck to the ridge - some easy and fun scrambling. Several fun glissades on the way back down to Lake Como.

Nice relaxing traverse after Blanca - has anyone actually stayed on the ridge for this traverse instead of heading accross the face?

RatballsRoute Climbed: A small fissure in the south face Date Climbed: 20 August, 2004  Sucess!

Ratballs

I had a fun night and day in the Lake Como basin, and climbed a somewhat obscure route on Ellingwood's south face: a small fissure to the east of the larger crease between the summit block and the southwest ridge (the one that most south face ascenders use). This one goes straight for the summit from the top of the talus slope just north of the lower Crater Lake.



The storm at Lake Como the night before was atrocious. I'm surprised nobody was killed.



Trip report here.

Made the trek from Blanca right along the ridge crest. This made for some fun class 3 ridge climbing and one section even involved some class 4 moves. We made the summit of Ellingwood around 9:30am after spending the night on the summit of Blanca.

What an awesome time to come to Como Lake! We didn't share this basin with *anyone* else all day. We tried out the SW ridge and loved it so much, we repeated it in 2003. A trip report is available here.

Nice Mountain. I am suprised some people resisted recognizing it as a seperate summit from Blanca. My 10 month old puppy Sopris' second fourteener and fifth mountain. Raymond dog was along on this one as well.
