 Mt. Linsey / headwall   

What‘s up? I don‘t like TR that are filled with personal badges or "off subject" crap. I prefer conditions and suggestions:

TH to summit 6am to 1030am (with breaks/delays)

At the river crossing, the small log pile is icey and still a bit unstable like last year (resulting in a 20min delay). At the crossing, you can go to the right for about a hundred feet for other options. The trail is very easy to follow and elevation way points listed on Bill‘s report are very accurate.

At the class 4 head wall, be advised the the middle pitch is very fun, but is hard to fit though at the top. I have broad shoulders and a big pack and I had to stop at the top. I instead choose the route on the left, which I would call a 3+ due to how short it is. Right before the head wall, be sure to be a bit under the ridge to keep it class 3.

I recommend desending the 2+ standard route. BRING A HELMET!! Rock fall potential is high. Feel free to PM me with questions.
