I think I was one of the folks Spotswood met on the summit (talked about Parker FD?).

We had a group of 10 people, split into two groups (4/6). Both groups went up the ridge, which is wonderfully solid and 3rd or easy 4th-class with minimal (but not NO) exposure.

Some came down the ridge, some the gully - those that came down the ridge made much, much better time than those who descended the gully. If youre comfortable downclimbing class 3/4, you might consider descending the ridge.

After Lindsey all but 2 of us went over and tagged centennial "Huerfano Peak" (Pt 13828) and Iron Nipple.

Storms threatened on the descent, but dissipated before following through on their threats.

A productive weekend. Two of us climbed California Peak the day before, and for the two days we were able to check off 1 14er (Lindsey), 2 centennials (Cali, Huerfano), a bicentennial (Pt 13660), and a tricentennial (Pt 13577).
