Moogie737Standard route to gully, then a free-for all  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2017


#1 7-7-17 With Lana. From the Lily Lake TH. The gully route was still holding some icy snow; we took the rocks to the right of the gully and have forever rued the fact that we didn't take the Class 3 ridge all the way up and down. Live and learn. We made it. And we enjoyed the summit all to ourselves. 14er number 40 for both of us. Made it to 12,500' before the heavens opened, the lightning flashed, the thunder rolled and we slogged out in a state of heavy wetness the final 1.3 miles to the waiting 4Runner.

climber46Off-route a bit on the ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2009


Climbed Mt. Lindsey via the standard route in 2009. My friend and I got off-route a bit which led to some of the more scary scrambling I have ever done. We gained the ridge and it mellowed out and we reached the summit 4 hours after leaving the car. We descended via the coulior which was intimidating due to all the loose rocks. The hike out was easy after this part.

ericdShort hike, long drive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2015


6hrs up, 4hrs down, 8-miles roundtrip, on this beautiful bluebird day but after a 20-mile bumpy drive to the end of the road trailhead at 10,700'.

Trail became an instant favorite hike through a spectacular forest, gentle flatlands, followed by a serious 1000' rise along the Huerfano river source, past a mine, and into an expansive basin. After a soft dirt climb to the first saddle, then a short traverse across a boulder field to the second saddle, the 1400' of rock scrambling began.

Looking at the snow coulier and ridge, my climbing partner MissH and I joined up on Lindsey's NW Ridge as we chose this express route straight up. FYI: Good rock compared with say mountains on the Elk range makes negotiating the steep crux not so bad and we climbed slightly left of the headwall. Class 4 in some places due to ice and exposure. False summit preps the peak less than 10 mins away. Enjoy!

Summited via NW Ridge with Eric_d. Lost trail a few times due to snow-patches resulting in route finding. Had trouble keeping the ridge to a class 3 in some places due to the lingering snow/ice. The scary spots were worth the views and scrambling fun but only in hindsight! The unintentional chest-high dip into Huerfano River near the end of the hike was, at a minimum, refreshing.

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

technicolorNHYou don't get to see the summit until you are almost on top of it  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2014


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!

cdevenney84Go LEFT at the CRUX on the ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2013


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 ever 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.
