One of the fifty-odd fourteen-thousand-foot mountains in Colorado, Mt Lincoln is also a fine ice climbing venue.
The main ice forms from run-off trickling down Lincoln Amphitheater. The broad-set climbing area lies between
11,900 ft and 11,300 ft. Montgomery Reservoir lies at the base of the climbing area. This is a day use area, meaning
if the locals find you bivouacked in the parking lot, they will let you know you aren't supposed to sleep there! Alot of people climb here! The most appealing thing about Mt Lincoln's ice climbing, besides ease of access,
is the low level of objective danger, especially with regard to avalanche risk. While ice climbing is probably
the riskiest of any form of ascent, Mt Lincoln offers a relatively safe place to experience the screaming barfies.
