Standard route, sort of  Sucess!

Took the standard route up to the point of the top of the gully, at which point I headed right to the ridge. Sure beat the loose rock of the remaining way of the standard route.

Nice mountain!  Sucess!

Beautiful range in Colorado, hopefuly i'll find more time this summer to do more climbing in this area. Mt. Lindesy is beautiful mountain, we climb standard route, snow in coulair was very soft but duable. Nice climb

Northface Couloir  Sucess!

The gully is just as loose as everyone says it is, a helmet is a wise choice. If you stay towards the sides (right side predominately if I remember correctly) you can find a little more "solid" rock. Was made more difficult by ice and snow that had formed in some bad places. Take your time and pick your route carefully.

winter slog  Sucess!

Continued to go with the theme of making things harder than they should be by missing the main gulley to 12k. But it all worked out and enjoyed spending time in a seldom visited area in winter. Nice mixed scrambling near the top.

NW Couloir  Sucess!

This mountain should NOT be under-estimated in winter. Finally summited after a 3-day trip. Roughly 24 miles RT with heavy, wet snow in the upper basin. Had a good couloir climb with a 40ft section of mixed.
Tough mountain in winter.

Northwest Ridge  Sucess!

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!

NW ridge  Sucess!

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!

Unplanned summit  Sucess!

Was going for Huerfano & grabbed Lindsey on the way back. 2 for 1!

North Face Gully  Sucess!

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.

Celestial mood swing  Sucess!

Climbed in the sunshine and descended in the rain. All part of the fun. =)

Fun scramble on NW ridge  Sucess!

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.

NW Ridge  Sucess!

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

Wintry June  Sucess!

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.

NW ridge  Sucess!

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.

2nd 14er  Sucess!

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.

Sunny Climb, Soggy Return  Sucess!

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.
