Mount Lindsey, elevation 14,048 ft (4,282 m), is a fourteener in the Sangre de Cristo Range of southern Colorado. Located near Blanca Peak, it is the forty-third highest mountain in Colorado. The summit and most of the southern flank of the mountain are privately held, but access to the summit is allowed. In 1954, the name was changed to honor Malcolm Lindsey, a beloved chaperone for the Juniors of the Colorado Mountain Club in the 1940s.[3] Previously the mountain had been known as Old Baldy.[3]
