Robert Ellingwood was one of the most important climbers in the 20th century, so it’s only fitting to find a route in the storied South Platte area named after him. Ellingwood Chimney (now a 5.8), on the west face of Bisop Rock, was considered one of the most difficult climbs in the country when Robert Ellingwood climbed it in 1924.
