Ellingwood SW Class 3 Route Via lake Como
technical/difficult/exposed Class 3 & lighter Class 4. Great challenging route if you want to get away from all hikers, experience a high exposure knife edge and climb/route find your way up to Ellingwood pt with fantastic views the whole way.
Once you are committed, there are hardly any bail out points if at all off this ridge. Only climb if you are confident in your abilities on big exposure and much more technical class 3.
No cairns, you will follow the ridge the whole way and choose your own adventure at different pts to look for greater challenges (class 4) or avoid.
Came down the standard Ellingwood route.
