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.

I think our biggest problem was determining what pile of rocks was the true summit. The scree-sliding on the way down to Kite Lake was a blast, though. Any quick descent is fine by me!

Route Climbed: DeCaLiBron Date Climbed: August 17, 2000  Sucess!

The fog was so thick that visibility was about 10-20 feet. simply amazing weather. The scree skiing off the summit is SUPER FUN! Not to be missed for its descent, not many mountains have that said about them.

Route Climbed: DeCaLiBron Date Climbed: June 5, 2002  Sucess!

I soloed the DeCaLiBron. I was very pleased that the road had been grated because otherwise, my Prizm wouldn't have made it to Kite Lake. A few inches of snow fell the night before, but it melted very quickly. I didn't like the descent off Bross, but fortunately I found some snow to take advantage of for some of it.

Try the descent during the late spring/early summer before the snow melts out of the gully - less erosion that way through the scree.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: Multiple  Sucess!

First time was Sept. 2001 and I had to practically run off the mountain to get out of a snowstorm. Only got Cameron/Bross that day since the weather was so crazy. Thankfully getting from Bross to the parking lot only takes 45 minutes (or less) if you're in a hurry. Climbed again in August 2003 to get Lincoln and complete the group. Had good weather and didn't have to run down Bross this time.

Worst of the Lincoln group. Some lazy ass drove to the top... lame.

This was the finishing touch to the triple header. Coming down the mountain was a bit tough, but extremely fun!!

Route Climbed: Three Banger via Cameron Point ridge Date Climbed: September 1, 2003  Sucess!

Great day! Blue skies all day. What an ideal finish to the three banger. Helped several people find the path down to Kite Lake.

Route Climbed: Standard, 4-banger combo Date Climbed: 23 august, 2003  Sucess!

Really kind of an un-exciting mountain. Its mainly just a really huge blob of talus with no real features or aesthetics to speak of. The hike from Cameron is literally on roads - as the top is completely checkerboarded with old mining roads that you could easilly take most 4WD cars up. Met a party of Europeans on mountain bikes on the top. Decent back to Kite lake is well defined, but somewhat of a choss pile - its amazing that enough thousands of boots can change talus into funky, loose scree. Not really a peak I'd be too excited about doing agin just due to the boring factor :)

My climbing partner Tim and I reached the summit of Mount Bross on Saturday, August 9, 2003. This was Tim’s second official 14’er of the day. We left Democrat off the circle traverse as I had reached its summit earlier this year with a fellow climber.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake via Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln Date Climbed: July 9, 2003  Sucess!

Kind of a long day...I'm not gonna fib! It wasn't too hard, though I had a headache most of the day. I suppose it was due to lack of acclimation. I was fine the rest of the week, though, so I guess these 4 got me good and acclimated! Kind of a boring mountain, I thought, with it being so rounded at the top. Not really any distinct peak. How crazy that people drive all the way up there!! I wish we would have asked someone for a ride down...but the way down wasn't too bad. Full of scree, but it was fun. I found a little bit of snow to slide down-whee! It was nice to get back to camp after a while. I tried to swim in Kite Lake but only got in to about my waist before I high-tailed it outta there! BRR it was cold!
