My dad and I climbed Ellingwood from South Zapata Lake. I've named this route the "crossfire couloir." Check out the trip report: "Caught in the Crossfire: An Uncharted Route up Ellingwood Point."

ktiffany22Return to E. Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006


After summiting Blanca May 13th, weather prevented us from climbing E.Point... so we came back (and yucko do I hate Como Lake road!).
This mountain looks like awful loose scree (and who likes that?!)... but it turned out not to be too bad! We enjoyed it- and met some friendly hikers along the way. Good stuff!

shanahan96southwest ridge in winter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2006


calm, winter day....and thank goodness. the ridge was fun, not tough at all until the base of the summit block where i was forced to pull myself across the knife edge of snow with my ice axe. 50 feet in two minutes! #6 of top-100 in calendar winter.

After the LB-Blanca traverse I headed back to camp to nap. Woke up at 3PM to great weather, so I decided to go for it. A great route and some of the best summit views I've seen. What a great place, I'd love to come back and climb this one again. Icing on an already delicious cake.

Date Climbed: May 25, 2006


From Blanca, I thought this was going to be a pain in the ass talus scramble, I was wrong. Relatively good climbers trail most of the way up on good (sometimes loose) rock. The traverse over from Blanca just below the ridge was actually more exciting than doing Blanca itself! Ideal weather though.

Glad this peak is added to the list of 14er's.

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!

bc44caesarRoute Climbed: Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: 27 Aug 2005  Sucess!


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.

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.
