|We started from the standard Huerfano River TH, and made the ridge in about two hours, and the summit in three.|
We stayed to the right of the scree in the couliers on some solid rock, which made it alot easier. Coming down that scree was not that pleasant, however.
The weather was picture perfect - no wind, clouds, and temperatures pretty high for 14,042 feet.

|It surprises me that Lindsey doesn't see more traffic considering the spectacular area that it resides in. I mean this area really is a step up in scenic beauty. The Blanca Massif and the Iron Nipple will blow you away! The Huerfano Valley is too large for life. Lindsey is a nice step up in difficulty if you want to try something more technical than a class 2 hike.|

|Climbed the Noth Face couloirs withs some people from Denver Colorado Mountain Club. Nice group of people. I did not mind the loose rock in the couloir but the guide books should suggest helmets on this one. The mountain looks intimidating from the saddle but once you get closer, it is fine. |
Fun day ! Such a nice variety of scenery!

|Good climb. I stayed on the north ridge instead of entering the "bowling ball" class 2 chute. The rock was fairly solid and pleasant. It felt more like climbing than trudging up loose scree. There are several variations up the north ridge with minimal route finding needed. Great views of Blanca!|
