Mountaineering: Lincolns Throat - Indeterminate
This hike/climb will be based on conditions, but normal conditions this route has one pitch of ice climbing at WI3 can and should be expected at a minimum. early season there is three full pitches but during the mid season snow will blanket all but one pitch.
Essential gear is mandatory. Gear list can be found on the groups "Files" section. We will be hiking and climbing "off the beaten path"....
This climb is about getting away from the crowds and climbing a mountain.
This is a remote climb. Not difficult once in with plenty of snow its remoteness often requires snow shoes and 1-3 pitches of technical climbing at the most. Its a beautiful route with some unique scenery.. Based on our speed we once to the top of the ridge and having still plenty of sunshine left we can continue up to the summit of Lafayette and then down back to the cars.
