Easy summit after steep climb to East Ridge I. Very open and crowded, had to really search for a place to go the bathroom. Not one of the quieter peaks and definetly did not like the jeep road people can take almost all the way up Bross. Felt like Pikes Peak with cars at top of mountain.

Democrat was the 3rd of 5 fourteeners that my partner and I climbed in 5 days. Pretty easy hike up, a well defined trail from thousands of feet! Fantastic views from the summit. We had intended to do all three peaks, but we got a late start and the weather was not looking good (the early morning was rainy and cloudy that day), so we came back down. Another day for Lincoln and Bross! Roach states in his book 'Colorado's Fourteeners' that you must park passenger cars at a switchback below the creek. Not so. The creek has a nice bridge over it now and you can drive all the way up to the lake. Get there early though, if you want a parking place!

I did this in the same day along with Bross and Lincoln. What a cool view back over to Freemont Pass.

As is usual, this was the first of these 4 peaks we climbed that day....Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross, in that order. Beautiful hike, but certainly not alone. We chatted with many along the way, including a 7-yr-old boy on his way down who had just done his first 14er, and an older chap in his 80's who was making his annual birthday climb of this trio with the aid of a friend and a cane. We were impressed!!

We intended to do 4 14ers this day. My buddy Duane made all 4 (Sherman, Democrat, Lincoln, Bross), but I only got Sherman and Democrat. The previous week was brutal for me with 3 nights of little or no sleep, including the drive to Colorado from Washington. I had run the Hood to Coast Relay in Oregon one week earlier, which is an all-night event and involved over 17 miles of running in three legs. Then an all-night drive two days later, then this 4 days later. So my body was entirely wasted after summitting Democrat, and I watched Duane head on over to Lincoln without me. I barely made it down the mountain to the car. When I got there I layed back the seat and crashed. It was nearly dark before he finally stumbled into the parking lot, satisfied but also exhausted. Then we had to drive to Boulder! How crazy are we anyway??? ;-)
