Insta Clouds  Sucess!

Clouds came in faster than I've ever seen on a 14er. Climbed with Alex. We saw about 20 deer on the drive up.

N Ridge Solo  Sucess!

My first trip to the Sangres. The crux has some serious exposure. I don't recommend this as a solo trip without rock-solid confidence. A helmet is a good idea more especially for the walk back down the gully route. I was lucky enough not to encounter anyone on the summit block, but did move some rocks in the gully. It gets pretty nasty.

Huerfano River Valley/North Face Couloir  Sucess!

I hiked Lindsey with a facebook friend, Allen. We camped out below the trailhead the night before. We started hiking around 5:30, reached the summit before 10AM, and arrived back at Lily Lake Trailhead just before 1PM. There was a fire burning in New Mexico or to the west of us. The views from the top were very hazy, and we could smell the smoke. Other than that, it was a fine day, sunny and breezy.

Back in Business  Sucess!

First big peak since recovering from an illness - felt great. I got an early start so I could summit Huerfano Peak and the Iron Nipple as well.

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!

Great run  Sucess!

Ran most of the way up with Leah. Got a little scared by some intimidating looking clouds, but the weather held long enough for a summit. Got rained on a bit on the way out. Really great day. Huerfano Basin is gorgeous.

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!

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. =)
