My partner and I climbed the Ellingwood Arete using the direct start from North Colony lake (5.4). We started at 6am and summited at 11:15am. It was a very successfull and brilliant climb. We only roped up for two pitches near the summit in the interest of maintaining the rule of "off the summit by noon". The exposure was wilda nd the climbing was solid. A great route. This was my third time up this route, and my best time yet. whatta day!
