Emily Isaacs on the upper middle half of Ellingwood Arete. Beautiful sustained 5.6 climbing
The red line shows our route up the mountain.  We were definitely on the right track, and it felt good for the grade.  The blue line marks a gully/crack to the left of where we ascended (the gully/crack is not the blue line, but the visible crack just right of the blue line).  It could likely also be used as the start, and meets our route about 250-300ft up.  We rapped that gully, and it looked 5.6ish.

Ellingwood Peak.  Notch Pinnacle is on the left and separated from Ellingwood by a snow couloir.  The North Ridge (III 5.6) follows the arete that rises straight to the summit from the base of this snow couloir.  The Southwest Ridge (descent route) follows the right hand skyline.
