Ascent Trip ReportMeetup.com trip. We climbed Blanca first, then partly followed the ridge to Ellingwood Point. The leader brought his dog, so we had to drop down into the bowl and find and easier way up. There was no clearly marked trail, but we eventually made our way up the loose talus to the summit. Then we headed back to Lake Como, napped for a little bit before hiking the 6 miles back down the (expletive) Como Lake Road.
