Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: July 24, 2004  Sucess!

This is a tough descent due to scree. There is a cool waterfall near the end.

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: August, 2002  Sucess!

Started at 4:00am under a full moon and completed the Decalibron: Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. What a great way to climb multiple peaks in one day!

Route Climbed: Democrat-Lincoln-Bross Date Climbed: July 7, 2001  Sucess!

Great day for all 3 peaks, but the wind really picked up on the way to Bross...the wind made it too miserable to stay and enjoy the views so, we headed down.

Route Climbed: Ridge from Lincoln Date Climbed: July 21, 1999  Sucess!

Drove up to Kite Lake and did the Decalibron route for Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. The round trip time was about 6.5 hours. Got chased down Bross when the weather moved in, but all in all, it was a very good trip.

Route Climbed: From Lincoln Date Climbed: 10 Oct 2004  Sucess!

Last peak on the Decalibron - took about 40 min. from Lincoln. Hiked south to "South Bross" for some pictures then headed down the unpleasant west face trail.

Route Climbed: Last leg from Mts Democrat, Cameron, and Lincoln Date Climbed: Saturday September 18, 2004  Sucess!

Reached the summit about 10:10AM, very clear, blue skies, but very windy. Signed the summit log, stayed about 15 mins. Down a steep, scree-filled trail back to Kite Lake by 11:20AM. My 8th 14'er, and another beautiful morning!

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: May 8, 2004  Sucess!

4th fourteener; third of a full day. Talk about a broad summit! Reminded me of the surface of the moon or Mars (not that I've ever been there...)

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: 8/15/04  Sucess!

The final leg of the Decalibron. There were jeeps and ATVs at the top and we were tempted to ask for a ride down. Going down the scree of Bross back to Kite Lake was both fun and a royal pain. Somehow we got sucked into a drainage and did a nice rock climb down the sides of a waterfall.

Route Climbed: Lincoln-Bross Traverse Date Climbed: Late '70's (wow!)  Sucess!

Lincoln's a nice mountain. I hate Bross--although to be fair it might have more than a little to do with Aaron and I coming down the wrong way, and having to do about 20 or 30 miles of bouldering.

It was funny, though--and memorable--that while crossing a snowfield on the way down, I fell through up to my waist, and was thrashing about more or less helplessly, when I heard a "click" behind me, followed by, "Wow, what a shot..."

I'll probably never get over it.

Route Climbed: Cameron Basin Date Climbed: July 4, 2004  Sucess!

This was a fairly unspectacular mountain, but... it did provide a nice snow-filled gully that allowed rapid descent via glissade. Warning!! Snow up top was a little icy and it didnt take much sliding to realize I was out of control.. Great opportunity to practice self-arresting! Cheers!

Route Climbed: Decalibron from Kite Lake Date Climbed: July 17, 2004  Sucess!

After climbing Long's a few weeks ago...it seemed sick and wrong to sleep in late and bag 4 peaks with such minimal effort. Nice scenery and easy hiking don't make for solitude. Still a fun hike though.

Route Climbed: Decalibron from Lincoln Date Climbed: 11 July 2004  Sucess!

Descent to Kite Lake was hard on Spencer the Mountain Dog- he didn't care for the scree at all. Luckily there was stilll a fair amount of vertical feet of snow left in the gully.

Bross seems a little less exciting after Lincoln. Still, it's a good hike, probably the easiest of the three. There was even a cyclist doing this one! There was some confusion on where the actual summit was (I didn't see a marker anywhere), so I wandered around to the various rock shelters and cairns so I made sure I touched the actual summit (a method that is called "Lobdellizing"). Then it was on to Democrat.

Climbed it along with Lincoln and Democrat. I was with my 2 brothers. Trails were quite crowded. Nice big summit on Bross.

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.
