Route Climbed: Mineral Park Mine Trailhead, 4x4 road Date Climbed: July 4, 2004  Sucess!

Ran Bross from Mineral Park to train for the Pikes Peak Ascent. A great running route from Mineral Park to almost 13,500. Above there, it's a little too rough to run. What a strange, big summit!

Route Climbed: Standard Decalibron Date Climbed: June 19, 2004  Sucess!

What an uninspiring summit! Very windy with threatening weather. The actual summit is somewhat hard to place and we choose the rock shelter as the most likely spot. Descent via the snow-filled east gully was definitely the most interesting part.

Route Climbed: From Cameron Date Climbed: June 12, 2004  Sucess!

I climbed Bross after Democrat and Lincoln from Kite Lake. It took me five hours car to car. The weather was cool and windy and a snow squall blew through on my way from Cameron to Bross.

Route Climbed: via Lincoln Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

I think our biggest problem was determining what pile of rocks was the true summit. The scree-sliding on the way down to Kite Lake was a blast, though. Any quick descent is fine by me!

Route Climbed: DeCaLiBron Date Climbed: August 17, 2000  Sucess!

The fog was so thick that visibility was about 10-20 feet. simply amazing weather. The scree skiing off the summit is SUPER FUN! Not to be missed for its descent, not many mountains have that said about them.

Route Climbed: DeCaLiBron Date Climbed: June 5, 2002  Sucess!

I soloed the DeCaLiBron. I was very pleased that the road had been grated because otherwise, my Prizm wouldn't have made it to Kite Lake. A few inches of snow fell the night before, but it melted very quickly. I didn't like the descent off Bross, but fortunately I found some snow to take advantage of for some of it.

Route Climbed: via Lincoln + Democrat Date Climbed: July 2000  Sucess!

Try the descent during the late spring/early summer before the snow melts out of the gully - less erosion that way through the scree.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: Multiple  Sucess!

First time was Sept. 2001 and I had to practically run off the mountain to get out of a snowstorm. Only got Cameron/Bross that day since the weather was so crazy. Thankfully getting from Bross to the parking lot only takes 45 minutes (or less) if you're in a hurry. Climbed again in August 2003 to get Lincoln and complete the group. Had good weather and didn't have to run down Bross this time.

Great day! Blue skies all day. What an ideal finish to the three banger. Helped several people find the path down to Kite Lake.
