Panthera unciaNorthwest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2010

Panthera uncia

Climbed the Northwest Ridge and was battled by some howling winds. If you don't mind a little exposure, climb this instead of hiking up the scree gullies. The rock on the ridge was solid and fun. The crux was exciting!

Third time on Lindsey, all via the n.w. ridge. Main objectives for the day were "Huerfanito" and UN 12915. 12915 is a tough little buger to crack from the Iron Nipple side!

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


Had a bit of trouble finding the turn-off for the Mt. Lindsey trail and wasted about an hour of time heading up the Huerfano trail on accident. Whoops....luckily, the weather was fantastic, so this detour didn't prevent us from a successful summit bid. The gully route was loose, steep, and ugly. Can't say I was a big fan. Next time, I'm doing the ridge route! A challenging but beautiful mountain, for sure.

sevenviiFun scramble on NW ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2010


Was a fun route to go via the NW ridge. I hit the normal route(gully) on the descent. It was very loose, and not near as fun or safe(in my opinion) as the NW ridge. Great bluebird day up in the Sangres.

Short but fun 4th class on the ridge. Surprisingly "wild" for a CO 14er. Trip report

We started out a little bit late (10:30ish). The sky wasn't looking good but the weather report said only a slight chance of t-storms later in the evening. When we got into the drainage, it started snowing on us and then was off and on the whole way up to the summit. TNF Couloir was pretty icy with a decent amount of snow in it still (we brought and used ice axes). I summited around 3:15. My friend that was with me was having some bad AMS so he was going a little slower. I was waiting for him on the false summit and decided to run over to the true summit while I was waiting cause the weather looked as if it was going south. Signed the log and went back to wait only to hear him calling me to come down. It was a good call even though he was 150 below the false summit. He was feeling pretty bad plus another wave of the storm was coming. About 200ft below the summit thunder struck just above the ridge and it began to snow very very hard- white out conditions. It snowed and snowed the rest on the rest of the descent. It was a very snowy and icy ascent of my 11th and most epic 14'er ascent yet.

Very fun. One move around the left side of the crux wall was the most exposed move I've done unroped. But it was very solid.

Went up the standard gully route, I think I was 13. My little brothers backpack fell down the gully and I'm pretty sure it's still rolling.

Enjoyed beautiful, calm weather for the ascent. Once below the saddle, the clouds rolled in and it was a steady drizzle all the to the TH.

Fell into stream right at the start and filled my Goretex boot with icy water, changed socks and the wet ones immediately froze. Did not feel my toes for a few days, but reached the top. My dog accompanying me.

Went up to do the NW Ridge but couldn't pass up the N Face when I saw the great snow on it. Fun route with the snow. Also climbed Iron Nipple an Huerfano.

Lindsey will go down as my toughest winter summit yet, but that was due largely from the wind, my dehydration, and spending a few days de-acclimating in the Midwest the week of the climb. Took nearly 11 hours RT from a camp at 10800'. Plowed through a fair amount of fresh snow. The ridge was blown clean of fresh snow, but we had to go over the knife edge, which is not so easy in the wind! Rapped the headwall.

Started from Lily Lake TH. Climbed North Face route up and down the gully. It was loose with some hard snow, but not too bad. Then headed for Iron Nipple. Fun scramble, perfect weather, great views!

7/24/05 - Fun scramble up the NW Ridge. Got soaked on the way back to the TH.

3/8/09 - Overnight trip. Hiked in to camp and enjoyed a nice fire in the middle of a snow storm. Lots of wind and blowing snow on summit day. The NW ridge was fun, but spicy near the headwall. A rope came in handy.

cftbqnorth face couloir route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2008


Tried the ridge route about halfway up, but bailed and backed down to take the couloir. It didn't seem as dangerous as reports had suggested, although small patches of (hard) show made a few little sections dicey. Exited too soon, going climber's right at the little saddle, and did some exposed scrambling to the summit ridge. As difficult as advertised, very satisfying to get. 14er #41.
