Matt MahoneyRoute Climbed: Lake Como - West Ridge - Hourglass Date Climbed: July 30, 2003  Sucess!

Matt Mahoney

The climb took about 9 hours round trip from the San Luis valley at 8000 ft. There was water rushing down the Hourglass and patchy hail on the rocks. The only decent holds were in the middle of the waterfall. Fortunately someone had left a rope, but it was in bad shape, knotted with an exposed core and just the sheath at the bottom. I used it anyway, pulling myself up in a few places, and looping it around my waist for safety during the downclimb. Photos.

A good climb. Trough is known for loose rocks, and believe me they are loose. some water on the mountain makes it slippery in a few places. great view from top.

Im suprised to see little bear a popular climb.back in the summer of 76 i was living in Monte Vista. A budy of mine from Oregon had been doing a bunch of climbing around the Vista area.We hooked up with a group of climbers headed to Blanca.after spending a night at lake como we all headed up but the draw of little bear got our attention. Im not sure what route it was or is. there was snow field and a few ledges then steep huge loose boulders. rock fall cut out rope so we were down to 50 foot . 5 pitons and slings for swamies. we hit the ridge at about 400 feet below the summit. i remember it being a knife edge sharp and followed it to the summit. We returned the same way except for we rapped off the other side where we came up to a ledge... i think on the south east side of the mountain. We then found a huge crack in the mountain that lead to the como side of the mountain.down a snow field and back to camp.. its been a long time ago and im not sure of the directions but if anyone knows i would like to know.... My budy never climbed again..it scared the crap out of us both but for me it fueled me for a life time of climbing. tetonmaniac@hotmail.com

It was a beautiful morning. Solid climbing and an early start allowed my partner and I to be on the summit by 9:30, and continue on to Blanca and Ellingwood. Great mountain!!!

The west ridge route can be dangerous, however I climbed it with only one climber above me and is was some fun class 4 climbing with allot of loose 3rd class to the top! A early start, good climbing skills, helmet and a rope are reconmended!
