SW Ridge Fun!  Sucess!

This ridge surprised me and turned out to be more fun and exciting than I thought it would be. Lots of excellent class 3 scrambling. The rock was solid and I enjoyed my solitude away from the crowded standard route. Try this ridge if you like long sustained scrambling!

Blanca and Ellingwood  Sucess!

Great day. Loved cruising down the ridge proper from Blanca and taking in the great scrambling. Descended the West Ridge.

A really excellent route. Can find fun 4th and low 5th class stuff to stay directly on the ridge. Awesome views of Little Bear, Blanca, and the traverse.

Blanca and Ellingwood (with a tricky descent)  Sucess!

Started at the base and then went camped at Blue Lakes (much much better then Lake Como). We did Blanca and Ellingwood. We then took the ridge towards Blue Lakes from Ellingwood but then found a cool and ***easy looking*** chute that led down to Crater Lake. That was one of the scariest things I have done. There was an open mineshaft at the bottom that my friends went to explore. Bad idea but they said it was worth it, I was content outside. Crazy chute with lots and lots of loose rockfall...a huge rock sheered off and flew right by use. We were lucky to come out of that safe.
