The area was suprisingly gorgeous. We were going to do all 4, but one of my climbing partners got ill, so the two of us did democrat and then met up with the third climber at Kite and did some fly fishing. it was a great day!

Some friends meet us Saturday night, after our climb up the West Ridge of Quandary, and we partied too late. We got up late, so we bailed on our planned North Ridge route. We went to Kite Lake to climb all 4 in this group the lame way, and the weather turned stormy early (smart move to kill the North Ridge route). We simply climbed Democrat and returned to Kite Lake...it was pretty much the weakest 14er experience I've had.

From Montgomery Reservoir I did Mt. Democrat's North Couloir, Mt. Cameron, and Mt. Lincoln. CAUTION; route finding your way out of the Lincoln Amphitheater is a reall BI#@H if you did not come up that way.

Actually, it was my first hike over 5,000 ft. After a weekend in Denver and a night in Fairplay, I climbed it from Kite Lake. The lack of air was totally new to me and slowed me down considerably, but persistence got me through.

We did it along with Lincoln and Cameron. Left Bross for another day to make it easier on our dog. Our slideshow is here: Lincoln, Cameron and Democrat from Kite Lake

Pretty sure this is the lamest 14er. The view is marred by the molybdenum mine. The route from Kite Lake has very little to look at

Standard route from Kite Lake. Democrat was my 10th 14er back in September of '94. Got in a repeat climb of all four of these summits, with family this time, just before the access controversy exploded.

Only was able to climb Democrat as it snowed about 4 inches and I had left most of my warmer gear at home.

From Kite Lake. Nice hike, some lingering patches of snow. A guy that was on the summit was also on Shavano three days later!

Climbed this 14er the morning after my buddies and I were turned down mount tabeguache due to thunderstorms and hail. Was a beautiful clear night, saw about 6 shooting stars. We were up at 2 and were hiking by 3 since we had to catch a plane back to New York that day. It was really very serene, we ended up just hikin up the right face of the mountain (same side where trail goes) but more towards the middle. Great intro hike for the 14ers, also really fun at night.

Heard rumors of a ban by the owners. Decided to head up there anyways. Found 1 little sign on the porta potty at the Kite Lake Trailhead but found plenty of other people hiking up. Wanted to do the 4 mountain circuit was it was quite windy and cold so did just Democrat.
