Real windy with ice and snow.
Climbed the four peaks on 4th of July
Almost missed it, it was a very windy day with lots of bad weather.
Planned on Democrat, Lincoln, then Bross - hit Democrat, then made it up to Cameron when a bolt of lightning struck nearby. I got shocks from my hiking poles, are hands went numb, and women's long hair stood on end. I've never gotten off a peak faster in my life! Gave me a healthy respect for lightning in Colorado.
Climbed this one with Old Guide as part of our annual summer father & son 14er climb after Democrat. Beautiful weather early in the day which built into the normal summer storm clouds enough so we turned around.
5 in one day, starting with Mt. Buckskin, great day!
Kite lake start in late september. About an inch of snow on the ground. Made the hike to democrat with no real problems, only blowing snow. Descended to the saddle and headed up Cameron. We arrived on top to a 60mph blizzard. since everyone had already done lincoln, we moved towards bross, but couldnt see the broad ridge in the whiteout, so we followed our tracks back down to the saddle and to the car.
whats not to love....just don't fall in a booby trap mine hole.
Seemed like a great idea to stp on the way to Lincoln, but I was sure wihing it wasn't in the way when I was trying to get down quick!
Someone below suggests bulldozing the peak. Phooey! I say let's dig deeper on the connecting saddle from Lincoln and make it count. =)
My wife and I did the Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross cirque with our dog, Boomer, to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Great weather day!
2nd leg of the Decalibron. Probably more real a climb than Lincoln since I had to climb up from the Democrat/Cameron saddle.
Depending on whether or not you consider Mt. Cameron a 14er, we completed Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross. There was still enough snow on Bross for a small glisade.
I'll log this one too.
Climbed en route to Lincoln from Bross.
Snapped a photo, onto Lincoln.
Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.
Not much work but felt good to be on top of another one en route to Lincoln and Bross.
Nice day of rock hopping.
