Rescue  Sucess!

This was my third climb of Ellingwood. We climbed Blanca first and then Ellingwood. On the way down we encountered 2 guys helping an injured girl. She got hit in the ankle with a rock. I called for help on my cell. When a ranger showed he requested I remain to be part of the rescue party. It was slow going. I got back to camp at 10:00 that night. I was too tired to do Little Bear the next day. What helped our decision to leave were the yahoos that arrived to camp next to us. They were using a shotgun to split wood!

North Ridge  Sucess!

This was my first climb of Ellingwood. I climbed the North Ridge from Huerfano River trailhead. I climbed point 13660 on the way. The weather didn't look like I should go for Blanca.

Little Bear - Blanca - Ellingwood Pt in a day  Sucess!

From camp at Lake Como, climbed the West Ridge of Little Bear, performed the traverse to Blanca Peak, then descended Blanca's Northwest Face to Ellingwood Point's South Face with my friend Keith. The descent from Ellingwood Point back to camp was scenic.

Ellingwood Point, Summer 2003  Sucess!

This peak really introduced me to the beauty that the Sangre de Cristo region has to offer...

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Second time on Ellingwood. Climbed the direct Blanca/Ellingwood Ridge and downclimbed the SW Ridge. The latter route probably would have been better climbing rather than downclimbing, but quality nonetheless.

SW ridge  Sucess!

That SW ridge is bomber. Loved it.

SW Ridge Route  Sucess!

LOVED the SW Ridge route - it is probably my favorite ridge route I have done. Fun solid climbing with a little exposure along the way.

W ridge and airy traverse  Sucess!

went up most of W ridge in the dark; not a problem. Loved the finish: "Oh, I'm here!" and walking along the ridge top with 1000+ feet of exposure; thrilling if you like that sort of thing. =)

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the SW Ridge with Jamie Nellis. First to summit for the day, beautiful morning! We headed on to Blanca from here.

traverse from Blanca  Sucess!

Really wanted that SW ridge, but another day. Blanca looks cool from this point!

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.
