Highlights

  • Ellingwood Point is a Colorado 14er in the Sangre de Cristo Range.
  • It is approximately 1/2 mile northwest of 14er Blanca Peak.
  • Ellingwood Point only barely qualifies as an independent peak under the 300 foot topographic prominence cutoff which is standard in Colorado.
  • Because of its proximity to Blanca Peak, it is often climbed together with that peak in a single day.
