Description

Jeff and I picked Brian up at his condo in Silverthorne, Colorado, around 8:00 and headed over to Lincoln Falls by Montgomery Reservoir and Hoosier Pass.  We were the first party to the trailhead on a fairly brisk morning.  Fortunately there was no wind which allowed us to make three laps up the main gully throughout the day.  Since the gully is 2 pitches, we each got a couple of leads in before heading home.  The gully is 40' of WI3, 160' of WI2, and another 40' of WI3.  We had a good day without the typical weekend crowds you find at Lincoln Falls.
