Got all three - had a nice glissade down bross! Fun day!
Happy 3rd wedding anniversary to Chris and Marni on the DeCaliBron. Rainy weather on and off all day but never any thunderstorms. I disliked this descent more than probably any other one I've done so far.
Nice scree descent after this peak. Top big enough to land a plane on.
Loop from Kite Lake TH. Very windy. Descending the scree field was loads of fun...
Old Guide and I tagged this one also after Lincoln before dropping into the valley back to the Quartzville Creek TH.
Less interesting, even, than Cameron...but a decent day out anyway.
Had to come back to finish all three off
End of the 3-peak afternoon.
1st full day of summer and nailed Decalibron!
The last peak at the end of a great day. Crossed over the top of Cameron, but didn't really "count" it until a couple of decades later when I climbed it from base to summit. A fine day with my new wife, Mrs. Rat.
I had a great time strolling over from Democrat. barren place up there.
Four 14ers in a day. Nice hike but clouds obscured the views.
climbed the snowpacked west gully with kiefer and glen. awesome time climbing a safe couloir in the heart of winter. winds up high made for a miserable summit and descent to 12,800' or so. outside of that, great day!
DID LOOP FROM KITE LAKE TRAILHEAD
Hiked all four via Lincoln Amphitheater from Montgomery Reservoir Trailhead with my friend Jason. Although Bross by itself is probably easy, my quads were burning by this time.
Bross seemed the easiest peak of the day. I was very tired and a storm was coming in so we hustled on the trail from Lincoln and summited. Weather was clear when we arrived. High winds. My best friend and I did our usual type trip from Oklahoma. Drive all night, sleep a couple of hours, go for the summit. We had never done more than one 14er on any trip but we decided to give this a whirl. Doing Democrat was the most difficult, we had not time to adjust to the altitude difference from Oklahoma to Colorado so we both felt queezy. Arriving at the summit was great! Completed Cameron, Linclon and Bross glissaded down the face of Bross. Great way to finish. Easy descent. All of these four peaks were done before these were closed recently.
This was my 6th climb of Bross. This day was from Kite Lake and combined with Lincoln & Democrat.
This was my first time climbing Bross. This climb was combined with Lincoln. Most of my climbs of the Lincoln, Democrat & Bross group were from Kite Lake. A couple of the climbs were from the east.
Started at Kite Lake, hiked up to Democrat, traversed over the Cameron, then Lincoln and finally Bross before coming down the western side of Bross back to Kite Lake. If you miss the trail coming down Bross it is a scree field that isn't much fun to come down. Even my Golden Retriever didn't care for that. Otherwise it was a great day.
