Fantastic day but windy. Not too much snow either. Also did Cameron and Lincoln
The only redeeming quality is high wind climbing practice
Tons of people on the summit
The pain generated in my thighs from descending through the scree was unpleasant, to say the least. Yet, the whole Decalibron Day (D-Day) was wonderful! Scree fest and all!
Last summit of the tour; had good views all around from this unremarkable summit. The descent to Kite lake was unpleasant. Total hike time was 4 hours.
4 hr C2C. Much easier than expected.
If Bross were open to climb, it could have easily been done in combo with the other peaks in the area!
Turned back before attempting Lincoln and Bross due to sketchy looking clouds. Turns out we could have finished. Better safe than sorry though.
Hiked Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
I did this one with Lincoln and Democrat. Probably the easiest three 14ers to bag in a day. Two Boxers hiked up with their owners. They were still doing outstanding on the summit.
Climbed with C. Stephens. Summited on September 4, 1982 in my 4x4.
Trucks on the summit! Dumb!
just below the summit was anticlimactic
Done as part of the Decalibron.
Came up Lincoln Amphitheater and got all 4 (Lincoln, Bross, Cameron and Democrat) before having to bail down to Kite Lake because of a storm. Found a nice couple to give me a ride back over to my car.
Scree down to Kite Lake.
east face as a training run for pike peak marathon
Watched tourists having wine & cheese on their jeep tour. A little too commercial!
Last of the Decalibron four. How can a mountain peak be private property? Beautiful site coming from Lincoln, this is a nice wide trail to the top, then has a soft descent trail back to Kite Lake Trailhead, losing 2170' in 1 hours time. Classy waterfall at the end to refill with Colorado's finest.
I really cant believe the summit is "closed to public access". 14ers at least should be public land, we ignored the signs that said dont go and went anyway, who would know? Theres no such thing as a closed mountain. Last mountain of the day...glisaded down its face to Kite Lake. Climbed with Democrat, Lincoln and Cameron.
