Livelife4Summits

The most exhausting one of the quad....the steep climb is quite an undertaking, and is not for the faint of heart....

My wife Julie, her sister Kathleen and I summited. There was snow the whole way, quite chilly at the summit. We were told at the start that it was too hard, but started anyway. My sister in-law said that if she could do it, it wasn't very hard. Well others did not make it Kathleen and you did. We formed a small group of about 6 to descend. That was much harder than the climb. It was my wife's and sister-in-law's first fourteener.

Good hike. Very windy. For beginners that want to climb multiple mountains in one day, this is the hike. All four mountains in 4hrs 30min.

White out, sleet and snow. Had to guide a stranger down. Make sure and go to some of the sites and visually memorize the way before you go. When it's beautiful, no problems, but... I can't say enough about not taking the easy way down- right through the scree fields. Hundreds of us do it, and then the mountains get torn right up. I know nature slides the hills, but we do it faster. The high trailhead makes for an easy 3 peak day. Still time to head to some hotsprings after.

Score one for the new Colorado Scrambles book! Nice, easy ridge. Stayed the crest and explored "off route" scrambling(class 3-4) to increase the fun factor.

It was a cold morning. About half of the trail was covered with snow. Some of it was knee deep. It made for a hard climb. We reached the summit in 3 1/2 hours. Awesome views from the top! Storm clouds were rolling in so we decided against trying for Lincoln & Bross. It snowed on us during the descent. Still a great day!

Arrived at Kite Lake in the dark the night before and camped. Awoke to a GORGEOUS view of Democrat, Cameron, and Bross (Lincoln can't be seen from the lake) begging me to climb! Climbed all 4 that day with Democrat being the first test. It's a very different mountain with all the large boulders to climb over! View from the top was stupendous. Would definitely recommend.

1st of 4 mountains that day. Not a bad scramble going up, not as much fun going down.

Climbed it with my eight-year-old daughter. It was a long hike for her but we made it and she was quite proud of herself.

Climbed this from Montgomery Reservoir. This was a great route up until the last few hundred meters. The ridge can be done all 3rd/2nd class but that involves signifigant traversing below the ridge top to the west across many rubble filled gullies. It is more satisfying to stay on the ridge top, although this entails decent amounts of exposed third class maneuvering on mostly solid rock. Near the top of this ridge you encounter an old mine with a faint trail leading towards the summit. This trail doesn't gain ground very quickly. I suggest ignoring it and proceeding directly upwards near or on the ridge top. Also the descent from the Democrat/Cameron saddle was an obnoxious scree slope, very slow going. It would probably be better to continue over Cameron and Lincoln and descend Lincoln amphitheatre to Montgomery reservoir. A short side trip to Bross would net all the peaks of the 'DeCaLiBron' in a far more asthetic manner than the Kite Lake trails.
