Ascent Trip ReportThis was my first attempt on the Ellingwood Ridge and there was a group of five of us. One claimed that he had done it before so we followed him from the standard parking area off highway 82. About an hour in one of the members of our group started to feel sick with altitude sickness so she turned around with another member of the group. Three of us continued following our friend who was supposedly familiar with the route. He had clearly led us off the trail and by the time the sun came out we were closer to the North Ridge than the Ellingwood Ridge. After that we decided to just go back and give it a shot the next day.
