Climb Blanca Peak and Ellingwood Point!

Meet up on Friday morning at 8:00am at the wolly mammoth lot, section BB.  We should arrive at the Lake Como Road by noon and drive as far as we can safely make it on the Como Road and hike to either Como Lake or the Blue Lakes. We will camp for the night and summit Blanca then Ellingwood in the morning and hike back down and head back Saturday afternoon/evening! Hopefully by leaving Friday and heading back on Saturday we will beat some of the weekend traffic!

    Do I need to bring snowshoes or micro spikes?

      Um im bringing crampons and an ice axe just in case but probably no snowshoes. Micro spikes would be helpful for sure.

    I was planning on summiting blanca and ellingwood 5/9 camping on the 8th. Got three inches of snow at lake como in 1/2 hour around 3 pm. Turned around and drove home. Be prepared for snow from como lake above. Let me know the conditions I would love to hike these very soon but this weekend is too soon. [masked]

    I work during the week and it is hard for me to do these at this time, but my job is changing and I'll have more freedom, so hopefully I can join you on one of these that are during the week.
