Pretty hike in. Foggy Morning. The NW Ridge is fun climbing with a short eye opening section. We descended the colour which just sucked..

Four hours and forty minutes up from the lower trailhead and four hours back down. The couloir was a lot of fun but the only other person on the summit that day (Craig R. from Terre Haute IN) did give me worthwhile advice on the route. The rain started pouring down when I was descending on the saddle so I declined to climb Iron Nipple or Huerfano Peak.

Early morning climb of the Northwest Ridge route - a fun scramble, definitely more worth climbing than the standard North gully!

Northwest Ridge route - I heard the gully was loose and dangerous as a result. The Northwest ridge is fun although there are some scary class 3 moves going to down to the Crux Face, with a ton of exposure. Once there, GO LEFT up the face - I brought my two friends up the right side, and it was a strong class 4, maybe touching class 5 and down-climbing would have been very dangerous. I didn't feel comfortable and was rattled for a few days thinking about how I almost got my two friends killed.

Lindsey is a cool mountain, surrounded by a staggeringly beautiful area. However, I did not enjoy the route on the north face! It was probably overall the most legitimately uncomfortable I've even felt on any route. I'd take the ridge next time! After surviving the mess, and as I was just heading back down into the basin, a friendly breeze blew the wonderful scent of evergreen all the way up out of the lower valleys to my nose.

Great climb with 2 other ladies. Had a great time. Wildflowers were everywhere. Added a little rock scrambling, but easy climb over all. Did not want to leave the peace of the basin.

Thought this was a great mountain. Fantastic scenery, easy-going scrambling. The weather started looking iffy, so we passed on Heurfano and the Iron Nipple...guess I'll have to go back! I love summer in the Sangres. Had a great camping spot about one mile from the TH, slept great near the stream and away from the road.

NW ridge, w/ Faith. Left TH @ 8.08. Moved quickly across now-familiar trail. Trail straightforward, R below start of standard route saw party of 3 who were going to the ridgeline. Leader suggested it was 4th class. It looked fun, as F & I jumped on it ahead of them. Fun little route! Mostly 3rd, w/ some 4th thrown in here & there. Summited @ 11.35. Enjoyed views before leaving summit @ 12.25.

Decided to summit the Iron Nipple after climbing Lindsey because, well, it’s the IRON NIPPLE! Summited @ 13.34, left @ 13.36. Pleasant hike down. Back @ TH @ 15.55. Nice hike, great views from summit!

Kessler was supposed to sing in a church activity, but we both had colds and Kessler had a very sore throat. Rather than stay home and infect everyone (both at home and in public) we decided to break away and go spend some time climbing mountains. We only decided to go about 10 minutes before we left. Gear was quickly thrown in the car and we drove south before spending the night.

The next morning we went for a climb of Mt Lindsey. We made our way up the mountain as quickly as we good, but got sidetracked on a false trail below timberline. We found the error and the correct route and then made our way quickly to timberline. From timberline, it was obvious that much of the route was snow covered.

We hiked over to the couloir and then climbed it. It was pretty icy in places, so we had to be careful. We passed several people in the couloir while making our way up the mountain. We summited in 2 hours 45 minutes, which wasn’t too bad for hacking and coughing. We had some nice views, but it was hazy because of forest fires.

It was very windy on the climb up, but the summit was surprisingly calm. One lady on the summit had banged her leg up good when she slipped on the ice.

After a long lunch we headed back down the mountain via the icy couloir. I slipped a couple times and it was found that the walking stick I stashed on the way up was gone. I assume that someone was having trouble with the slippery conditions and took it. Anyway, I bruised and scraped my side in a short slip before reaching the saddle.

From the saddle, it was decided that we would climb Iron Nipple, but because my walking stick was gone and since I tend to get sore knees without it, we wouldn’t climb Huerfano Peak. We climbed Iron Nipple, which was more interesting than expected before heading back down the mountain and to the vehicle. After that we drove to the Walsenburg area to get ready for a climb of West Spanish Peak.

Love that ridge! I only wish it was longer. I had the summit to myself for the first half hour. Beautiful mountain.

Summited Lindsey dead last via the standard route around 1 PM after a late start (10:10 AM) just coming into Colorado from Houston. Luckily there were no storms; great views all around. It was my first peak on my 13 day long Colorado trip.

Climbed the standard route with buddy Dustin. This was a loose nasty climb up the gullys. Keep to the right on solid rock and wear a helmet like the others said. Beautiful hike up to the start of the gulley.

I think this peak is underrated both difficulty and scenery wise. Upper Huerfano basin is a pretty cool place. I climbed up the ridge route which has good rock. I would say the crux is class 3 if you go toward the left. I took the gulley down which is loaded with dangerous loose rock
