Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.

Mt. Lindsey was called "Old Baldy" for years until 1954, when the peak was named after Malcom Lindsey. Approaches from the east are not available to the public, so the only approach is through the Huerfano Valley. There are two popular routes: The North Face and the West Ridge. The North Face is Class 2+, but requires a climb up a steep scree gully. The West Ridge is Class 3 with a little more exposure, but the rock is more solid. The approach up the valley provides excellent views of Blanca Peak and Ellingwood Point
