ouray19Democrat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2004


After summitting Democrat we were half way up Cameron when I looked at my hands to see them quite swollen. A little embarrassing, but didn't know what was going on. Decided to quit for the day. A passing hiker told me to use treking poles and I've never had the problem since!

This is the 2nd 14er that I had soloed. Because my best friend, Alex, had missed this climb, he "forced" me to take the peak AGAIN TWO DAYS LATER!!!! I totally couldn't believe I did that. Hahaha!! AWESOME climb...GREAT friend!

My first 14'er excursion -- hiked the "Decalibron" route to knock off three ranked 14'ers plus Cameron.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 1996


Parked passenger car at Sweet Home Mine on Kite Lake road and walked the road. Left Kite Lake at 7AM and on summit in 2-one-half hours. Sound of thunder and some snow pellets prevented me from doing Lincoln-Bross. Saved those 2 for next year.

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!

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


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.
