Climbed, Democrat (Southeast Face), Cameron, Lincoln, Bross, and South Bross. Great hike with lots of time spent at altitude. Took approximately 6 hours for the trip.
Wonderful day, stayed ahead of the weather, was able to do all 4 in 6 hours even.
Okay now, someone explain this to me- from the saddle of Democrat, the first "lump" you summit is Cameron... kinda felt like I DID climb an official 14er- Cameron... & that Lincoln was a mere "hey, let's walk 50 more feet & see what's up here!" Why in teh world would they even give Cameron a name if it's considered to be a part of Lincoln?!:-) Enjoyed the day, just caught in the thought!
We glissaded Mount Bross' West Gully.
#3 of my "Tour de Force" that day.
Just passed over it on the way to Lincoln and Bross
I arrived Wed. night late. I had trouble finding my way to Kite Lake road. I wasn’t sure where the trailhead was but I made the right guess. I started hiking at 4:00am and summited the first peak at 5:45. It was still dark. That was pretty awesome. I grabbed a quick munch and moved on. The second summit was farther than I thought and wasn’t much to look at and didn’t even count. I continued on and summited Mt. Lincoln, the best out of the four. It was cold and windy so I didn’t even sit down. I moved back to the saddle and continued to Mt. Bross. It was an easy traverse on a mining road. After summiting Bross I descended down the west slope drainage, it was hell. I arrived back to my truck at around 9:30am.
Did this peak along with the other 3 "real" 14ers in the area.
Just a transition area, nothing big.
Passed over this one enroute to Lincoln.
What a great hike starting and ending at Kite Lake in Pike National Forest. Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross in one day is great!
Next stop on the Decalibron circuit - reached after about an hour from Democrat
Reached a rather non-descript summit from across the saddle between Mt Democrat. Stayed briefly, and took several photos on a clear, beautiful morning. Then on to Mt Lincoln.
On the summit before I even knew it!
I Climbed Cameron as part of my Democrat-Lincoln-Bross Loop.
This was the second leg of the Decalibron for us. I don't care what some may say, this is a mountain. Perhaps it does not pass full muster for a 14er, but it still was nice to get to the top before heading over to Lincoln.
My son, Patrick, and grandson, Shawn, and I climbed all 4 summits, and would have climbed South Bross if it hadn't rained. Had a nice glissade off the summit of Democrat, Cameron, and Bross. Shawn turned back before we started up from the saddle. Almost got run over by a mountain biker as I summited Bross. I wonder if he guessed what I ment when I ignored his wave? I wanted to give him a wave of my own but didn't.
Watch out for the dangerous exposure on this "pseudo 14er". Bring an altimeter so you can accurately estimate just where exactly the summit is.
I know it's not official, but when you climb four mountains in one day, it ocunts in my book! Hardly could tell where the summit is...ah well!
I did Cameron first, then headed on over to Lincoln. Cameron kinda looks like the surface of Mars. I had planned on doing Bross first, but I took the wrong trail and went to the Cameron-Democrat saddle. Oh well, all that extra hiking just builds character.
