Gained Democrat's N. ridge from west side. Summited Democrat and then swung over to Cameron. Descended South side to Kite Lake and hitch hiked back to Freemont Pass.

Kilimanjaro training hike. We did Democrat first, then Cameron. It was windy and cold. Two fighter jets buzzed the area as we were nearing the summit. We decided not to go for Lincoln or Bross (there were some showers to the west), so we took a few pictures and headed back to Kite Lake.

A nice hike! Got my friend up his first 14er then talked him into Cameron too! He was a little resentful and tired, LOL.

It's kinda a cool summit, a heavy frost made it look like the Moon. Saw the stuck truck and the tow guys trying to figure out how to get it out.

From Kite Lake campground.
TH 5:15, Democrat summit 6:22, Demo-Cam Saddle 7:43, Cameron 8:30, Lincoln 8:50, Bross 9:49, Kite lake 11:15.
Beat the huge crowds by leaving at 5 a.m. on the busy Labor day Sunday. Was funny watching from the top of Lincoln as the herd was heading up Democrat. Nice folks, great weather and some idiot has a nice Toyota Tundra buried to the axles on the side of Bross's hiking trail, ouch!

On the stroll to Lincoln. Some douche had left his truck stuck near the summit.

This one definitely felt like a separate 14er while hiking up from the Democrat saddle. Quite a workout! Definitely enjoyed Cameron even though it doesn't officially rank.

Cool summit even if it isn't a "legit" 14er. We did the Decalibron that day and then went on to do Quandary next. Great day

I guess this one is not an official fourteeners, but it was on the way. So, why not to walk over the top...

Did this with Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross. It was a nice change after being in the rain for 4 days and failing to summit Holy Cross due to poor weather.

Kimberly, Shaylee, Kimberly and I set off to climb Mount Democrat, Mount Cameron, and Mount Lincoln.

It was a rough night before and the evening of July 3 was very windy. The tent kept blowing down at Kite Lake which was above timberline. We had left our smaller low profile tents home because at the time we weren’t thinking of camping at Kite Lake and it was a last minute decision (and a not very good one). After several trial and error experiences keeping the tent from blowing away we finally got it anchored down good, but a big gust bent the poles and ripped the tent making it unusable. We spent a long night squished in the vehicles.

After waking up after a not-so-restful night we set off for the Cameron/Democrat Saddle. We climbed to the saddle and rested, making the trip in a fast (for a five year old) 1.5 hours. I let the kids decided if they wanted to climb Democrat or Lincoln first and they wanted to Lincoln first since it was the highest. We make the nice ridge over Cameron (which is only an “unofficial peak” because it doesn’t have enough rise over the connecting saddle to be a real peak) and over to Lincoln and reached the summit in about 3 hours from Kite Lake. It was still too early for lunch so we had a long snack.

It was somewhat cloudy to the west so we decided to forego Democrat and head down a secondary route near Mount Bross. We had at first planned to skip that summit (the opened section of the trail bypasses 100 feet below the summit), but I met a group of hikers returning from Mount Bross that explained that some of the owners of the mining claims were up there in vehicles (there is a private jeep road up there from the west side of Bross) and were granting hikers permission to summit the peak. I ran ahead to talk to them, but could see them heading back in their vehicles just before I reached the junction. We asked another of hikers if they had talked to the people in the vehicles and they said no. It was snowing lightly, but there was no sign or sound of thunder so we went over the summit of Bross and down the monotonous scree slope and back to Kite Lake. The round trip was a fast 5.5 hours Kite Lake to Kite Lake.

Lincoln was a nice climb and a pretty one, but my original thoughts on Bross remain (I had climbed the peak in February 2005). Bross is still a monotonous pile of scree with few redeeming traits. Lincoln was the highlight of the trip and other than the blown apart tent the night before, the climb was a good one.
