jhansen007Route Climbed: Decalibron from Kite Lake Date Climbed: July 17, 2004  Sucess!


After climbing Long's a few weeks ago...it seemed sick and wrong to sleep in late and bag 4 peaks with such minimal effort. Nice scenery and easy hiking don't make for solitude. Still a fun hike though.

Climbed with Mom, Dad, and little brother. Found a magnetite rock - magnets stick to it.

Descent to Kite Lake was hard on Spencer the Mountain Dog- he didn't care for the scree at all. Luckily there was stilll a fair amount of vertical feet of snow left in the gully.

Bross seems a little less exciting after Lincoln. Still, it's a good hike, probably the easiest of the three. There was even a cyclist doing this one! There was some confusion on where the actual summit was (I didn't see a marker anywhere), so I wandered around to the various rock shelters and cairns so I made sure I touched the actual summit (a method that is called "Lobdellizing"). Then it was on to Democrat.

Climbed it along with Lincoln and Democrat. I was with my 2 brothers. Trails were quite crowded. Nice big summit on Bross.

Ran Bross from Mineral Park to train for the Pikes Peak Ascent. A great running route from Mineral Park to almost 13,500. Above there, it's a little too rough to run. What a strange, big summit!

A fun, solo day out up high.

Here's a (sorta) trip report.

What an uninspiring summit! Very windy with threatening weather. The actual summit is somewhat hard to place and we choose the rock shelter as the most likely spot. Descent via the snow-filled east gully was definitely the most interesting part.

I climbed Bross after Democrat and Lincoln from Kite Lake. It took me five hours car to car. The weather was cool and windy and a snow squall blew through on my way from Cameron to Bross.

Great day!

I think our biggest problem was determining what pile of rocks was the true summit. The scree-sliding on the way down to Kite Lake was a blast, though. Any quick descent is fine by me!

The fog was so thick that visibility was about 10-20 feet. simply amazing weather. The scree skiing off the summit is SUPER FUN! Not to be missed for its descent, not many mountains have that said about them.

I soloed the DeCaLiBron. I was very pleased that the road had been grated because otherwise, my Prizm wouldn't have made it to Kite Lake. A few inches of snow fell the night before, but it melted very quickly. I didn't like the descent off Bross, but fortunately I found some snow to take advantage of for some of it.

We descended the South west slope. It was a blast sking down the scree.

Try the descent during the late spring/early summer before the snow melts out of the gully - less erosion that way through the scree.

After summitting Democrat and Cameron, I headed over to Bross. Coming down the scree was the fastest descent I ever had.
