Mount Lindsey


Access from Gardner, CO:
West on the well-signed road to Redwing
Left onto Huerfano Road (#580) to road closure

I hiked up Huerfano Valley and Nipple Creek to the Mount Lindsey-Iron Nipple saddle. Then, I climbed Mount Lindsey‘s north face topping out on "NW Lindsey" en route to the summit of Mount Lindsey.  I skied Mount Lindsey's North Couloir. The snow was nearly perfect corn and the couloir sustained a steep angle. This was a very enjoyable ski descent. I climbed back up to the Lindsey-Iron Nipple saddle. I dropped my skis, boots and poles prior to climbing Iron Nipple and "Huerfano Peak".

Skied Elevation: ~1,807‘
Total Elevation: ~5,735‘
Time: 9 hours
