Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: 17 September, 2004  Sucess!

My second ascent. Did it in Sept. 1994, and came back with the family so that 1) my wife could complete the Decalibron, 2) my daughter could do the entire Decalibron with me, and 3) my granddaughter could get her first twofer. Every bit as delightful as I remembered, and got some excellent pictures.

Route Climbed: From Lincoln Date Climbed: Septermber 24, 2005  Sucess!

Good hike. Very windy. For beginners that want to climb multiple mountains in one day, this is the hike. All four mountains in 4hrs 30min.

All three from Kite Lake in white-out. Watch for trail climbing back down from Bross or you'll come down the scree and screw up the mountain some more. Rock skiing is fun, but if hundreds of us do it, the moutain suffers.

Route Climbed: Kite Late Date Climbed: 2 September 2005  Sucess!

Did the trifecta along with Democrat and Lincoln (quadfecta with Cameron too). Made the summit just as a group of folks with a hard-core very-driven paraplegic in a special bicycle made for climbing came around the last bend. Truly awesome! The trip down to Kite Lake was insane!! My tricks learned on Cameron Cone (skiing down the pebbles and loose rocks) were extremely helpful!

Weather was perfect, people were everywhere, all over the mtns. It was nice to see how many people are getting into hiking 14ers. Descending Bross was interesting with all the loose scree, it was almost easier to "ski" down the rocks.

Route Climbed: from Mt.Cameron Date Climbed: July 24,2005  Sucess!

Nice and easy hike from Kite Lake over Mt.Democrat and Mt.Cameron. Met up with Ryan on summit. Did not enjoy the steep descend on the West Slopes of Mt.Bross, except for watching the marmot. We were lucky it started raining/hailing only as we had completed the descend! Overall great hike with not much wind on the summits. Looking back at Mt.Democrat from Bross, we decided that Mt.Democrat is a beautiful mountain!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake via Lincoln Date Climbed: June 1, 2002  Sucess!

Like most people, we climbed Bross with Lincoln & Cameron. This was our second attempt at this combo. We were turned away earlier in the season by a knarly snow storm (thunder snow!)

These 3 14ers via kite lake are among the easiest in the Centennial State.

Route Climbed: Northeast Slope Date Climbed: May 25, 2002  Sucess!

Completed the quadruple with Bross. Number 6 was not much of a climb, which was great after a long day of hiking. The summit by Trent has forever been named "Hoss on Bross" Descending the ridge on the west slope was spectacular. The old man, Uncle Jack somehow beat us to the bottom. For a moment we thought fell and was left for mountain goat. Give us the damn keys next time, UJ.

I can't believe I tried to climb the scree field...bummer...turned around again less than 500' from the summit. Maybe next winter.

Route Climbed: Dolly Varden Mine Date Climbed: August 2003  Sucess!

If not for the cars going up and down the mountain, I would have enjoyed this one more so than I did. Once you get up past the mine shack, it is pretty easy. The scenery is about a "6." Good training mountain for a novice.
