The first ascent of Lindbergh Peak, an impressive spire in the Hell Hole region, the summit of which attains the altitude of 12,- 000 feet, was made September 1, 1929, by Carl A. Blaurock, William F. Ervin and Stephen H. Hart. There are a number of sharp summits in this region and many new routes are available to the mountaineer. This peak in particular is well known and has been attempted several times. The route chosen culminates in a sharp and spectacular ridge. From any other direction the ascent should prove quite difficult.
