Lincoln's Throat ascends a drainage gully on the west side of Mt. Lincoln. To get to the gully, hike the Old Bridal Path for roughly a mile. When the trail makes a sharp left turn with a moderate drop to your right, descend here through the trees to an old logging road. Follow this road alongside the brook eventually hiking in the brook proper. Follow this all the way up passing 2 other gullies, one coming down from the right, the other from the left. The gully on the left takes you to the Serpentine route. Follow the main drainage as it continues to get steeper eventually leading to the "Throat", an iced up dihedral. Some steep snow leads you to the base of the ice then have at it! Several short bulges lie above the dihedral. Keep going until you hit the krumholtz then thrash/scramble/fight your way trending right eventually running into the ridge. From here, take it left to Lafayette and down Old Bridal or right over Lincoln and down Falling Waters.
West side of Mt. Lincoln. Descend off of the Old Bridal Path at the sharp left turn when you hear the brook down and away to your right
