Four of us drove a 1948 Willey's(tricked out) up there via the minning roads from the SE (had to rebuild the road in a few spots). The rig started having carb problems around 13500. Good thing we had plenty of beer and cigs. Great place to park on the summit, good views. Just to many people.

This is a tough descent due to scree. There is a cool waterfall near the end.

Started at 4:00am under a full moon and completed the Decalibron: Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. What a great way to climb multiple peaks in one day!

Great day for all 3 peaks, but the wind really picked up on the way to Bross...the wind made it too miserable to stay and enjoy the views so, we headed down.

Drove up to Kite Lake and did the Decalibron route for Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. The round trip time was about 6.5 hours. Got chased down Bross when the weather moved in, but all in all, it was a very good trip.

Last peak on the Decalibron - took about 40 min. from Lincoln. Hiked south to "South Bross" for some pictures then headed down the unpleasant west face trail.

Reached the summit about 10:10AM, very clear, blue skies, but very windy. Signed the summit log, stayed about 15 mins. Down a steep, scree-filled trail back to Kite Lake by 11:20AM. My 8th 14'er, and another beautiful morning!

4th fourteener; third of a full day. Talk about a broad summit! Reminded me of the surface of the moon or Mars (not that I've ever been there...)

The final leg of the Decalibron. There were jeeps and ATVs at the top and we were tempted to ask for a ride down. Going down the scree of Bross back to Kite Lake was both fun and a royal pain. Somehow we got sucked into a drainage and did a nice rock climb down the sides of a waterfall.

SaintgrizzlyRoute Climbed: Lincoln-Bross Traverse Date Climbed: Late '70's (wow!)  Sucess!


Lincoln's a nice mountain. I hate Bross--although to be fair it might have more than a little to do with Aaron and I coming down the wrong way, and having to do about 20 or 30 miles of bouldering.

It was funny, though--and memorable--that while crossing a snowfield on the way down, I fell through up to my waist, and was thrashing about more or less helplessly, when I heard a "click" behind me, followed by, "Wow, what a shot..."

I'll probably never get over it.

This was a fairly unspectacular mountain, but... it did provide a nice snow-filled gully that allowed rapid descent via glissade. Warning!! Snow up top was a little icy and it didnt take much sliding to realize I was out of control.. Great opportunity to practice self-arresting! Cheers!

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.
