 Ellingwood Ridge Video TR   

Last Tuesday (6/13), we made an attempt at Ellingwood Ridge on La Plata. Route finding is no joke on that route. We made it about 85% of the way before running into terrain that we felt was too unsafe to navigate so we both decided it was safer to find a bail out point and head back to the car. Lots to learn from this trip. Although it was a very long day, we made it back safely!

What was the 85% mark? Was it on East La Plata? We did this ridge yesterday, and are curious as to what point was too sketchy to continue.
