Vertical Gain: 3,400 feet
Route: North Face

June 25 - 27th, 2003

This trip report is different than most other trip reports on my website, as this was a very special 14er climb. Earlier this year, we had lost a very special friend at the age of 25 due to complications with diabetes. Her name was Lindsey so her family and friends thought it would be very fitting to climb Mt. Lindsey and spread some of her ashes from the summit. Lindsey was born and raised in Rock Springs, Wyoming, but had been living in Colorado. She had grown fond of Colorado and as her family put it, she wouldn't want to be "stuck" in Rock Springs forever. We were very honored that the family would bestow this special privilege upon us. With her sister Kelly having to return to college soon, the weekend for the climb had finally arrived.
