SW Ridge

In addition to hosting the North Arete, one of the area's classic routes, Ellingwood Peak has a fine Class 3-4 scrambling route accessible from Island Lake or from Indian Basin. Sections of the upper ridge get pretty exposed, and sometimes some route-finding skills are necessary in order to avoid Class 5 or impassable terrain, but this route, which will take most people about half a day to complete (from base camp) is well worth the effort and the risks for the fun and for the views.

This is also the typical descent route for those doing the North Arete or other technical routes on the peak.
