Great gully when there's good snow like on this day. Wish I had my skis for this; I wasn't expecting such good coverage on a west facing gully this time of year.
With Susan Berry. En route to Denver from Aspen for an airport pick-up. Good use of a tedious drive...
A great trip to Decalibron, summited all four and got bitten by the 14er bug. Scree down to Kite Lake was pretty slippery
"South Bross" isn't on a mine claim.
Climbed it... you can own a mountain, but you can't tame it or stop determined people from climbing it.
We didn't make it up Bross due to a lightning storm coming in. We came down through a gully with snow and ruins from mining.
Last one of the day. I thought only the crap rock volcanoes in the Pac NW had scree like that. Ah well, headed to Breckenridge and had pizza at Downstairs at Eric's afterwards. Thanks for the nice vacation week, Colorado.
Part of the loop. Just walked over and down, didn't hang out.
Bagged Bross as the last of four Fourteeners which are part of the Decalibron Loop. The decent was long and full of scree, but fun. This is where hiking boots add value over tennis shoes!
When I hiked it I thought I saw a sign saying Mt. Brossus...
Windy and tired, #4 of Decalibron. Plenty of sunshine and wind. Had to rest a minute on the DESCENT!!
From Quartzville TH. Short and steep route. Windy winter day. Up and down in time to grab breakfast in Alma.
Also hiked with Decalibron group on 9/3/2008.
Climbed as part of the decalibron loop.
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.
