Great loop with perfect weather. No legal access to Bross.
Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, Bross.
Sustained 20-40 mph winds all day. Tons of people.
We enjoyed doing the 4, but glad it is done..
all four peaks via Kite Lake trailhead. With Wasatch Mountain Club group...
Family Decalibron outing---3:36 elapsed time. We got started late (1:30pm) and saw several people coming down during the first mile. We got hailed on a couple times. Journey hiked until it got steep and hard and I carried her to the Democrat split off where Brita took her. Brita went on to Cameron and Bross, while I ran as much as possible while getting Democrat, Cameron, and Lincoln. I got to the summit of Bross 7 minutes after they did. Coming down Bross on that slippery pea gravel with a 4 year old on your back with a dinged up foot is not for the faint of heart, but we made it. Journey was a little odd up at 14,000 feet, but was back to herself once we got down to 13,000. She ran once I let her out and impressively did all the stream crossings on the rocks all by herself without falling in. Fun day out, and a great day to conquer 4 14ers in one go!
Great day for the Decalibron! Went the traditional way up Democrat, then over to Cameron, Lincoln, and finally Bross. Fantastic blue sky day. First down.
Report on Mt. Lincoln page.
Final summit of the Decalibron.
Last summit of the day. We almost skipped this one, due to the fact everyone was telling us how dangerous it was going down. All in all, there was as very short section that was very slick. The rest was just scree and loose rock. I'm not certain I would call this the easiest 14er in CO, but I would not say it was dangerous either.
Last summit of DeCaLiBron. Pretty uneventful. The descent trail was very loose. Only took 37 minutes from the summit back to the car. 3:32 for the full four-peak loop.
Part of a four peak day with Democrat, Cameron and Lincoln
Cold, windy ascent from Moose Creek trailhead
With CraigL. Getting ready for the Transrockies run. We used this route for some acclimating.
after getting blizzarded off the route post-democrat last time out, came back and hit CaLiBron.
'S' Gully was the most awesomest glissade! Super sustained, no obstacles and like the name suggest, curves for a wild ride.
Climbed with my buddy who is training to be a fireman. Great day out with him and we got Lincoln and Cameron (2nd time for me) as well!
Started around 6AM, just beating the crowds. Perfect conditions along the whole route. Bross of course is a scree filled route down. Lots of gorgeous wildflowers. Back at car around 10:45AM.
With Rachael, standard route up the southwest gully. Decent winter day, not too cold and not to windy. Not much snow either, no traction required.
Hiked in the late 90s, with the standard circuit of Democat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
Last stop on a four mountain loop.
