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.

Route Climbed: Standard Date Climbed: February 21, 2005

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.

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: July 1, 2005  Sucess!

Mount Bross's huge, flat summit provided good views of Mount Democrat and Cameron Basin. The most memorable part of my hike was the descent down the West Slopes route, which was steep, slippery, and screey.

Route Climbed: West slopes to Bross, then the Decalibron in reverse. Date Climbed: July 1, 2005  Sucess!

#1 for the day, doing the Decalibron in reverse. Nice sunny day, but super windy and somewhat chilly (about 32 at the TH at 6am). Not much snow left, ran this in running shoes w/ a light pack to train for the Pikes Peak Ascent.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake (Bross, Cameron, Lincoln) Date Climbed: 9/02  Sucess!

Easy slog from Lincoln. We decended via the gully. . .steep scree! Probably more fun to glissade it in the snow!

Route Climbed: West Gully from Kite Lake Date Climbed: May 31, 2005

Climbed to 13,600 feet to the end of the snow for a ski descent. Great day with great views due to low hanging clouds. Skied back to the car on great corn.

Route Climbed: Mineral Park Mine/Dolly Varden Gulch Date Climbed: May 20, 2005  Sucess!

I climbed from the near the Mineral Park Mine site up Dolly Varden Gulch to the summit, then snowboarded back down to the car. Beautiful day with no one around.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: July 19, 2004  Sucess!

An "odd" mountain I'd call it- watched 2 SUV's & 3 motor-cross bikes climb to the summit... which by the way, is the size of a football field- crazy! The rocky terrain seemed very different from the other 14ers I've climbed, and the "Scree-ski" to the bottom of it was fun! Enjoy!:-)

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: 6/2004  Sucess!

I love this hike! I've done it about five times and last spring I went at it as a post Rainier workout. I took my video camera and spent quite a bit time setting up shots, but still got my best time...4 hours 24 minutes Jeep to Jeep. Running between the summit of Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross is an energizing experience... rock on!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake, N Slopes Date Climbed: August 2002  Sucess!

This mountain was fun only because it was my first in this range. Normally I do not like taking a stairmaster up a mountain, I wish I had done this in the winter! :P
