Blanca Peak is the fourth highest summit of the Rocky Mountains of North America and the U.S. state of Colorado. The ultra-prominent 14,351-foot (4,374 m) peak is the highest summit of the Sierra Blanca Massif, the Sangre de Cristo Range. Blanca Peak is known to the Navajo people as the Sacred Mountain of the East, the Dawn or White Shell Mountain. The mountain is considered to be the eastern boundary of the Dinetah, the traditional Navajo homeland. It is associated with the color white, and is said to be covered in daylight and dawn and fastened to the ground with lightning. The granite that makes up the Blanca massif is pre-Cambrian in age, dated at approximately 1.8 billion years old. The major part of the Wet Mountains to the east and the Front Range to the northeast are also pre-Cambrian, also about 1.8 billion years old. In contrast, the Sangre de Cristo Range to the north and the Culebra Range to the south are Permian rock between 250 and 300 million years old. Three other fourteeners are nearby: Mount Lindsey to the east, Ellingwood Point to the north and Little Bear Peak to the southwest. Ellingwood Point is connected to Blanca by a short, high ridge, and is often climbed in conjunction with Blanca.

Im Bryan! Great to meet you. I was born and raised right here in Denver, CO. My parents knew this place was hot in the ‘80s! Im 32, and have lived and enjoyed the outdoors all my life. I grew up skiing and hiking and I want to share my passion for adventure with others. I’ve climbed and explored the 14,000ft peaks of Colorado. I have also led over 39- five star reviewed trips on airbnb and guided over 50 people up and down 14’ers. I'm a former member of the National Ski Patrol and I'm certified as an Outdoor Emergency Care Technician. I am all about fun and adventure but staying safe is my #1 priority.
