We didn't make it up Bross due to a lightning storm coming in. We came down through a gully with snow and ruins from mining.
Last one of the day. I thought only the crap rock volcanoes in the Pac NW had scree like that. Ah well, headed to Breckenridge and had pizza at Downstairs at Eric's afterwards. Thanks for the nice vacation week, Colorado.
Part of the loop. Just walked over and down, didn't hang out.
Bagged Bross as the last of four Fourteeners which are part of the Decalibron Loop. The decent was long and full of scree, but fun. This is where hiking boots add value over tennis shoes!
When I hiked it I thought I saw a sign saying Mt. Brossus...
Windy and tired, #4 of Decalibron. Plenty of sunshine and wind. Had to rest a minute on the DESCENT!!
From Quartzville TH. Short and steep route. Windy winter day. Up and down in time to grab breakfast in Alma.
Also hiked with Decalibron group on 9/3/2008.
Climbed as part of the decalibron loop.
Fantastic day but windy. Not too much snow either. Also did Cameron and Lincoln
The only redeeming quality is high wind climbing practice
Tons of people on the summit
The pain generated in my thighs from descending through the scree was unpleasant, to say the least. Yet, the whole Decalibron Day (D-Day) was wonderful! Scree fest and all!
Last summit of the tour; had good views all around from this unremarkable summit. The descent to Kite lake was unpleasant. Total hike time was 4 hours.
4 hr C2C. Much easier than expected.
If Bross were open to climb, it could have easily been done in combo with the other peaks in the area!
Turned back before attempting Lincoln and Bross due to sketchy looking clouds. Turns out we could have finished. Better safe than sorry though.
Hiked Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
I did this one with Lincoln and Democrat. Probably the easiest three 14ers to bag in a day. Two Boxers hiked up with their owners. They were still doing outstanding on the summit.
