Climbing Mount Lindsey | An Exciting Class 3 Climb

Mt. Lindsey is largely privately owned, however permission is granted to climb the peak via the northwest gully or ridge routes. These are both class 3 climbs, requiring comfort with exposure and a bit of scrambling skill. The Gully route here is best used in early summer when there’s still stable snow to climb. In later summer you may wish to climb the more exposed but stable northwest ridge. If you decide to try climbing Mount Lindsey, you can plan your trip with this free Mount Lindsey Route Guide.
