My first experience on the summit of Bross occurred when I drove to just short of the summit and walked to the top. I then went over to Lincoln from which I proceeded on to Democrat. I took a very small amount of water and was very thirsty when I got back to the vehicle. As usual the wind was blowing and I was quiet cold. I stopped at the Windy Point turnout on the way down and read about the Bristle Cone Pines. When I started back to the vehicle I started shaking uncontrollably. I had the heater on full blast and couldn't quit shaking. I believe I had a mild case of hypothermia because of dehydration.



On June 24, 2001 my son and grandson climbed all four peaks from Kite Lake. We had an uneventful climb except my grandson got sick and had to go back before he got to the Democrat-Cameron saddle. The wend blew as usual but I had plenty of water. There were the usual number of people (lots) on all summits. We got to Bross so late there wasn't anybody to take our picture. As I walked the last few feet to the summit, a guy on a mountain bike came by spinning his wheels etc. He rode around one of the wind breaks and down he went. What a waste of fuel. I did three glissades on this trip; first one was off Democrat, the 2nd was off Cameron and the third was off Bross. Except for the biker, it was a great day. The thunder storm blew up as we were climbing Lincoln and went around us until we started down Bross. That's when it started raining, but wasn't even enough to break out rain gear.

At the summit I pulled out my sandwich and turned just for a second and my dog snatched it right out of my hand. She has never done that before! The only downhill scree feld that I actually loved

so far. It was actually fun - good sliding!!!

Bet you'll never guess what other peaks I climbed that day! Though this peak-baggers dream is oft ridiculed, if you look at it as a cirque traverse, then it gains more appeal as a great day for hikers and peak-baggers alike. Anybody tried skiing it in winter?

Bross was the 4th of 5 fourteeners that my partner and I climbed in 5 days. Basically a hike up a road. All the books say to go directly up the face of Bross once above the old Dolly Varden mine, but you can follow the road all the way around up to the Cameron - Bross saddle (longer this way, but no slipping and sliding). This adds another mile or two to the route. The summit of Bross was like being on the moon. It was clear and really windy on summit day.

A beautiful May day and we went up the wrong trail! Still an abundance of scree! Honestly, it didn't feel like we were on top as the summit is so large and flat. Cornices hung over the trail to Lincoln, so we went up Cameron and then returned over Bross for the descent. A great intro to the summer hiking season.

Both of these routes are easy and good first climbs for anyone in reasonable shape.

This was a great day for me. Not a fast climber (hence the handle, "the plugger"), being able to bag 4 peaks in one day was a great high, both literally as well as figuritively. I've repeated this set of peaks 2 or 3 times since, just for the fun of it.
