From Lake Como with Blanca  Sucess!

Enjoyed the traverse over here from Blanca. It was raining the last little bit to the top, making the rocks slick, but at least the cool temperatures kept the atsmospheric electricity at bay. Opted for a "shortcut" traverse for the descent...which sucked.

With Blanca  Sucess!

After summiting Blanca Peak we did traverse to Ellingwood Point. Great views of Blanca, Little Bear, Lindsey! SDescending from this mountain is not my favorite.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Very solid rock. Pretty easy scrambling, but very fun.

Ridge traverse from Blanca  Sucess!

Traversed from Blanca after completing the Little Bear-Blanca traverse. Dark clouds were building, so I hiked quickly from the saddle. Long day since I started from ~8,500ft in the valley.

24 years after Blanca  Sucess!

decided to come back and climb this. Started at about 9800 feet on the Lake Como road. Pretty straightforward. Ended up traversing over to Blanca to repeat my 1988 climb

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Classic route up a beautiful ridge line. Solid and fun class III all the way from the upper lake to the summit of Ellingwood. The descent through the talus wasn't fun, but the hike was great. Not sure I want to repeat the trudge up the Como Lake road in daylight!

WIND  Sucess!

Great winter climb. No snow on the road until we reached the Como Lake drainage (Holbrook Creek). The snowpack on the peaks is pretty shallow, with faceted crystals covered by sun crust.

After Blanca  Sucess!

walked the Class 3 ridge from Blanca. very convenient. The views of the massif are amazing and rugged. Hung out on the summit hour and half just enjoying sunshine and others company. Great time!! Scrambled to the bottom of the basin to find the trail.

Great mountain trip  Sucess!

Climbed it along with blanca peak. Started at the very bottom and camped near lake como for a night. Summitted both peaks the next day.

Lake Como via Blanca Peak  Sucess!

Meetup.com trip. We climbed Blanca first, then partly followed the ridge to Ellingwood Point. The leader brought his dog, so we had to drop down into the bowl and find and easier way up. There was no clearly marked trail, but we eventually made our way up the loose talus to the summit. Then we headed back to Lake Como, napped for a little bit before hiking the 6 miles back down the (expletive) Como Lake Road.

Lake Como Route  Sucess!

095  Sucess!

Ellingwood is only about an hour from the summit of Blanca, so you might as well bag it. It's easier and more solid than it looks. Camping at Lake Como is what CO is all about.

4th classic traverse  Sucess!

tagged this as an afterthought on the best classic 14er traverse in CO. at least it looks like a peak, unlike a lot of other bumps on ridges Tr here

Traverse from Blanca  Sucess!

After Gash Ridge and Blanca, I tried continuing down Ellingwood's North Ridge, but about 13,450 feet ran into 5th class choss down-climbing. Decided to return over Ellingwood's summit and made the long walk down Lake Como Road.
