Near the beginning of Sept 2011, we decided to tackle Little Bear, Blanca and Ellingwood peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Range. Little Bear is considered one of the most difficult 14er routes in Colorado and by far the most challenging peak I’ve ever climbed. We hiked up to Lake Como on day one, climbed Little Bear on day two using the west approach and the Hour Glass. On day three, we summited Ellingwood and Blanca and then headed back out on Lake Como Road.
I’m a much better photographer than videographer, but this is an attempt at splicing together a video the briefly sums up the trip. Enjoy.
