After the evening hail, starry sky at 4:30 AM with dispersed clouds accumulating over the peaks. Ptarmigans on trail at daybreak. Ryan and I climbed Democrat in two and half hours. I was slowing him down even he wont say. (Thanks for your patience!) Was surprised to not get rained on on the summit considering the way the clouds looked! Great hike! Proceded to Mt.Cameron very nervous about the clouds.....Ryan was rather optimistic....

Reached the summit in 2 hours. We recommend following the switchbacks instead of climbing along the ridge line. Most of the snow was gone, but we encountered winds of 45- 65 knots which prevented us from continuing on to Mt. Lincoln and Mt. Bross.

This was the first 14er for my wife and I. We climbed this peak on our honeymoon. I love you Jennifer!

Renamed the summit Mount Hillary Clinton, because Democrat was a bitch. Numerous false summits pissed me off. Great hike with the Colorado cousins, Uncle Jack, and Greg Rund, who just graduated from Columbine High. Unfortunately, Greg perished in Iraq serving our country this past winter. I will remember Greg for sharing his love of beef jerkey with the rest of group. God Bless, Greg.

The ascent and descent of Mount Democrat were the hardest part of the Decalibron for me. I opted to head straight down the ridge line for the saddle with Cameron from the summit, but this entailed downclimbing through lots of talus on a very windy day. I'd recommend heading back down Democrat's switchbacks instead.

ChrisRoute Climbed: Decalibron (in reverse of standard order, Bross 1st, Democrat last) Date Climbed: July 1, 2005  Sucess!


#4 for the day, doing the Decalibron in reverse. I did this backwards because the last time I attempted this, I was stormed off after only getting Democrat. I figured I'd go the other way this time and at least see some new terrain if that happened again. Beatiful sunny (but really windy) day, and a great training hike/run for the upcoming Pikes Peak Ascent.

Comment on West side couloir: A beautiful snow route that can be done w/out gear. You can see it clearly from HWY 91, heading East. It's the most prominent couloir that intersects the West Face, leading all the way up to the top.

Climbed, Democrat (Southeast Face), Cameron, Lincoln, Bross, and South Bross. Great hike with lots of time spent at altitude. Took approximately 6 hours for the trip.

Did the Bross-Lincoln-Democrat trifecta...pretty easy to knock out all three at once.

It feels so nice to bag 3.2 (Cameron- hey, it has a name, why not give it a .2?!) 14ers in a day:-) I love climbing these things, but having recently moved 4,000 feet in elevation lower to Greeley... the altitude gets me at the start of every 14er hike, so Democrat wasn't quite as enjoyable as the others, but of course I still love it! Made it through the initial "uck" feelings, & had a wonderful day! 14ers ROCK!:-)

I love this hike! I've done it about five times and last spring I went at it as a post Rainier workout. I took my video camera and spent quite a bit time setting up shots, but still got my best time...4 hours 24 minutes Jeep to Jeep. Running between the summit of Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross is an energizing experience... rock on!

This was a gloomy day with a summit masked in clouds. It was a unique summit view (or lack thereof).

Whiteout! and Wind! Those were the conditions the whole way to the top. The trail was hard to find because it was snowing so much, especially on the way down. The wind was blowing so hard on the summit it was very hard to even take a picture. I signed the summit log, but it looked as though someone spit ink on the paper and thought it might resemble a name, the wind was seriously insane. I had planned on hiking the "loop" but weather wouldn't allow that to happen. I will definately be back to finish my "loop".
