Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: 8/15/04  Sucess!

The final leg of the Decalibron. There were jeeps and ATVs at the top and we were tempted to ask for a ride down. Going down the scree of Bross back to Kite Lake was both fun and a royal pain. Somehow we got sucked into a drainage and did a nice rock climb down the sides of a waterfall.

Route Climbed: Lincoln-Bross Traverse Date Climbed: Late '70's (wow!)  Sucess!

Lincoln's a nice mountain. I hate Bross--although to be fair it might have more than a little to do with Aaron and I coming down the wrong way, and having to do about 20 or 30 miles of bouldering.

It was funny, though--and memorable--that while crossing a snowfield on the way down, I fell through up to my waist, and was thrashing about more or less helplessly, when I heard a "click" behind me, followed by, "Wow, what a shot..."

I'll probably never get over it.

Route Climbed: Cameron Basin Date Climbed: July 4, 2004  Sucess!

This was a fairly unspectacular mountain, but... it did provide a nice snow-filled gully that allowed rapid descent via glissade. Warning!! Snow up top was a little icy and it didnt take much sliding to realize I was out of control.. Great opportunity to practice self-arresting! Cheers!

Route Climbed: Decalibron from Kite Lake Date Climbed: July 17, 2004  Sucess!

After climbing Long's a few weeks seemed sick and wrong to sleep in late and bag 4 peaks with such minimal effort. Nice scenery and easy hiking don't make for solitude. Still a fun hike though.

Route Climbed: Decalibron from Lincoln Date Climbed: 11 July 2004  Sucess!

Descent to Kite Lake was hard on Spencer the Mountain Dog- he didn't care for the scree at all. Luckily there was stilll a fair amount of vertical feet of snow left in the gully.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: July 8, 2004  Sucess!

Bross seems a little less exciting after Lincoln. Still, it's a good hike, probably the easiest of the three. There was even a cyclist doing this one! There was some confusion on where the actual summit was (I didn't see a marker anywhere), so I wandered around to the various rock shelters and cairns so I made sure I touched the actual summit (a method that is called "Lobdellizing"). Then it was on to Democrat.

Climbed it along with Lincoln and Democrat. I was with my 2 brothers. Trails were quite crowded. Nice big summit on Bross.

Route Climbed: Mineral Park Mine Trailhead, 4x4 road Date Climbed: July 4, 2004  Sucess!

Ran Bross from Mineral Park to train for the Pikes Peak Ascent. A great running route from Mineral Park to almost 13,500. Above there, it's a little too rough to run. What a strange, big summit!

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake via Democrat, Cameron, and Lincoln Date Climbed: July 19, 1999  Sucess!

A fun, solo day out up high.

Here's a (sorta) trip report.

Route Climbed: Standard Decalibron Date Climbed: June 19, 2004  Sucess!

What an uninspiring summit! Very windy with threatening weather. The actual summit is somewhat hard to place and we choose the rock shelter as the most likely spot. Descent via the snow-filled east gully was definitely the most interesting part.

Nice easy 14er!

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.

Route Climbed: Via Lincoln Date Climbed: July 19, 2001  Sucess!

Great day!

Route Climbed: via Lincoln Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

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.

Great tripple tick!!

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.
