Anyone interested in doing these two peaks on the weekend of Aug 20 and 21.

We drive from Denver and backpack in to Lake Como on Saturday.

We hike both Ellingwood and Blanca and backpack out/drive home on on Sunday.

If you push it back about a week and throw in Little Bear, I'd be down.

Sorry Mike.....already done Little Bear and I have plans on the rest of my weekends for this summer.

Little Bear is awesome!!! You'll love the challenge.....if you survive the falling rocks that shoot at you in the hour glass.

Doing them on Aug14 Sun (or Aug 15, depending no how the Crestones go on Sat).

Probably going to day hike it, due to the mischievious bears. Not worth a $200 tent or sleeping bag getting destroyed.
