Solo again  Sucess!

Summited from the SW ridge. Alone on the summit while everyone else was on Blanca. Boot skied down the gully just West of the summit.

Crossfire Couloir / North Ridge  Sucess!

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."

Return to E. Point  Sucess!

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!

southwest ridge in winter  Sucess!

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.

SW Ridge, an evening affair  Sucess!

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.

SW Face  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: SW classic ridge Date Climbed: September 1999  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Blanca to Ellingwood Traverse Date Climbed: 9/30/05  Sucess!

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!

Route 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.
