ChrisRoute Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: July 18, 2004  Sucess!


Cloudy and windy, bailed on doing all four due to the weather. I spent 3.5 of my 5.5 hour mountain bike ride the day before in a cold downpour and decided not to make it two days in a row :-). Pretty easy fourteener, I'd imagine with good views on days visibility is more than 100 feet.

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.

1st of the 3 for the day. Beautiful weather the entire day. Spencer the dog's 5th 14'er, with lots of company for him on top.

I finished the Decalibron with Democrat, and this was the toughest part of the journey. It was a steep hike on loose talus from the Democrat-Cameron saddle. I reached the summit at about 1:30 PM. There were a few hikers there, but they soon left and I had the place all to myself.

A fun, solo day out up high.

Here's a (sorta) trip report.

Definitely the most interesting summit on the Decalibron loop. Climbed about 600' of moderate snow south of the main trail up to the steep talus pile. Thence to the summit by the shortest available route. Nice place, but crowded. Summer 14ers are definitely a different breed of mountain than what I've become used to.

Was unable to drive all the way to Kite lake so we managed to get a legal 3000 ft gain hike of Democrat. There was plenty of snow and snowshoes probably would have been helpfull. We wound up postholing quite a bit but got a great glissade from the summit almost all the way back to Kite Lake.

I climbed Democrat along with Lincoln and Bross. 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.

Had to spend 4 months at sea level and upon arriving back home in Colorado I went straight here to kick my butt back into altitude-shape!

Flew in from Seattle, rented a car, drove to the trailhead, and did the Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln circa all in one day! Was feeling the affects of altitude quite a bit. We descended down from Lincoln in the dark, got in the car, and drove off to the trailhead of Mount Elbert. Very fun but long trip.

Alex, Richard, Tim and I just kind of found our own route up to the top. We saw the inviting ridge on the south face of the mountain when viewed from Kite Lake and just followed it up to the top - a nice way to spice the climb up a little bit.

Did the Decalibron which in retrospect is not that huge a feat, but at the time: being on top of three 14ers in one day was incredible to me. The summit of Democrat was absolutely thick with fog, it was neat climbing into the clouds

Great tripple tick with Nate Lowery. It took 1.5 hrs to the summit from the lot!

RyanSRoute Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: September 2, 2002  Sucess!


Starting at Montgomery Reservoir, Erin and I hiked up to the headwaters of the Middle Fork of the South Platte. We were out early enough to not have to deal with 4WD vehicles attempting this challenging road. We hiked into a small amphitheatre below Traver Peak to gain Democrat's North Ridge above its saddle w/ Traver. The ridge gets very interesting at a notch that you can inspect while on your approach. To stay on or near the ridge crest would be fifth-class of a difficulty unknown to me, but it looked doable. We weren't up to the challenge, though, and traversed out onto the west-facing slopes to evade some of the difficulties. People are very surprised when they see you arrive at Democrat's summit from the north. We descended into Platte Gulch from the Democrat-Cameron saddle. I would not recommend our descent route for an ascent, because it's rather loose. Many 4WD vehicles were on the road to Wheeler Lake along our return trip.
