Decalibron: 4th down  Sucess!

Bagged Bross and then got confused about the proper path back to Kite Lake, so I skied scree on my heels. That was a quick way to lose vertical. Ended up bagging the whole group in 3 hrs, 59 mins, beating my goal by - get this - one minute!

Kite Lake TH, Ascend Democrat E Ridge, Cross Cameron Point to Lincoln W Ridge, Descend Bross W Slopes to TH

Knocking off 3-4 14ers, depending on your point of view, in one hike is great. Perfect weather. The shoe skiing down skree from Bross was a neat way to finish.

1 of "4" That Day  Sucess!

Depending on whether or not you consider Mt. Cameron a 14er, we completed Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross. There was still enough snow on Bross for a small glisade.

Route Climbed: Decalibron  Sucess!

Last one of the was quite windy on the summit, quite a difference from Democrat earlier. Descended the slippery scree on the way down - this persuaded me to purchase trekking poles.

Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip. Even walked out to "South Bross"

Democrat, Lincoln & Bross  Sucess!

This may be Colorado's least photogenic 14er.

N Slopes  Sucess!

My only true winter 14er ascent. Probably the easiest winter ascent in the state. We parked east of the summit, and camped at 13,000 feet in the Cameron Amphitheater. Kinda cold. Those mountains sure have a different flavor in the winter.

Standard Circuit  Sucess!

These three summits are hard. NOT!

Route: Kite Lake Loop  Sucess!

A footnote on the Kite Lake out for those cliff bands on the descent (not sure if we followed the trail or dropped in too early)! I recall some butt-sliding on this one.

Way high winds by the time we were otw to Bross for the final peak, picked me up and decided I should have been walking about 5-10 feet away, only stayed cause the ridge is so broad.

Route Climbed: Democrat-Lincoln-Bross via Kite Lake Date Climbed: April 2005  Sucess!

Went out for a little solo manajatwa action (If that make sense) Well bagged Democrat in a jiffy. On my way to Lincoln I started to suffer for my speedy ascent and lack of acclimatization. On top of the gully I decided to nix Lincoln and head strait for Bross. After picking up one more peak for the day I beelined it back down to Kite-Lake. All in all a successful trip.

I think that's when I climbed it? Not sure, bad with dates!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: August 1997  Sucess!

Last 14er of the group to summit for this day. I actually had the summit to myself at this particular time despite there being alot of people 'up here' today.

Took the quick way down via the scree slopes back to the gulch, lake.

Route Climbed: East slopes Date Climbed: 7/20/03  Sucess!

Climbed with Ef on his first 14er. East slopes is pretty uneventful, easy hike. My 8th 14er.

Just me and my fellow Chicago "transplants" trying to sneak another peak before winter

Route Climbed: Kite Lake via Lincoln Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2005  Sucess!

Descending the gully to the west of this peak is quite nice if the snow is firm. Be sure to check it carefully before taking it. If it get's nasty, can probably find exposed rock to descend on the sides.
