Started to feel the altitude sickness after the 3rd of the 4 summits
Great loop with perfect weather. No legal access to Bross.
Great views, not too windy.
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...
After taking a lot of pics from each summit, I still believe Cameron has the best view of any peak on the Decalibron.
3:36 elapsed time for the Decalibron. We got started late (1:30pm) and saw several people coming down during the first mile. We got hailed on a couple times, hardest as we were approaching the Democrat-Cameron Saddle/Ridgeline. 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.
Just Cameron and Lincoln today, 2nd time up Cameron. Road plowed about a mile and half farther than normal but signed with no parking at the end of plowing. Parked about 1/4 or so lower down below private property. Route in good shape stay right at Kite Lake and don't follow the summer trail, which lead to avy slopes. Climbed up a rocky rib to gain the head wall. Mostly dry on the ridge, some snow filling in part of the upper trails.
Report on Mt. Lincoln page.
Nice views and a nice spot for a quick rest before Lincoln.

Tagged on the way to Lincoln.
Second summit on DeCaLiBron. Very uneventful. I stood on top for 30 seconds then headed over to Lincoln.
Part of a four peak day, with Democrat, Bross and Lincoln
-50 F windchill, BroCaLi traverse
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.
After Mount Democrat we went up Mount Cameron. The wind picked up quite a bit and the increased exposure near the summit was a bit sketchy. We ran into a mountain goat at the summit which made it all worth it!
Bagged it with Mt Democrat and Mt Lincoln and came down via disused trail previously used by miners way back. Had to be very cautious and alert all the way down.
