  • Mount Lindsey is a Colorado 14er in the Sangre de Cristo Range.

  • Located near 14er Blanca Peak.
  • One of the more difficult Colorado 14ers to summit.
"Got to the trailhead in the afternoon and decided that the next few hours were the best window for weather. We started hiking around 4:30 PM and managed to summit just before it got completely dark. The clouds and the sunset made for a really awesome experience and once it got dark we could see a distant cloud lighting up with lightning. Got back to the car just as it was starting to drizzle." - Yosemike, Sep 11, 2013
