    Mount Lindsey:
    I hiked up Huerfano Valley and Nipple Creek to the Mount Lindsey-Iron Nipple saddle. Then, I climbed Mount Lindsey‘s north face to the summit. I skied the 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
