Having climbed Democrat last October, decided to get the other three. Cloudy, windy day, with very few chances to see the views from the summits - all in the clouds. Interesting hike all the same - circuit from Kite Lake. Glad the summit was so rounded, since I could hardly stand up in the wind.
Great time on Lincoln, Democrat, Bross, and Cameron
Got this with Democrat cuz I was up there.
Three chicks from Idaho on a road trip for a peak bagging vacation....Lincoln-Cameron-Democrat-Cameron-Bross loop. I am lucky my girlfriends think this is a fun thing to do....one of the windiest loops i have ever done...and even if there isn't 300 ft of prominence, it counts...in my book anyway.
Kite Lake Loop in winter. Actually the first time I had been up Cameron because on my previous trips for the other peaks I did them by themselves.
1st summit July 22, 2006
2nd summit February 27, 2010
Nice winter 14er outing with a group of 8 on a calm, warm day. 11 hour day at a leisurely pace for Decalibron from the winter trailhead just below Paris Mill. These 14ers are now officially open to the public!
Hiked to the top of Cameron on the way from Lincoln to Democrat and while returning back to Bross.
I didn't realize that I'd passed over the summit until looking back from Lincoln. This area is much more beautiful with a coat of snow.
4 peaks in one day, great hike.
Windy, Cold, Cloudy, Sunny, Cloudy, Sunny, Cloudy. Great Day in the mountains.
Just to let you know
Gained Democrat's N. ridge from west side. Summited Democrat and then swung over to Cameron. Descended South side to Kite Lake and hitch hiked back to Freemont Pass.
Kilimanjaro training hike. We did Democrat first, then Cameron. It was windy and cold. Two fighter jets buzzed the area as we were nearing the summit. We decided not to go for Lincoln or Bross (there were some showers to the west), so we took a few pictures and headed back to Kite Lake.
A nice hike! Got my friend up his first 14er then talked him into Cameron too! He was a little resentful and tired, LOL.
Summited with Democrat, Lincoln and Bross from Kite Lake.
It's kinda a cool summit, a heavy frost made it look like the Moon. Saw the stuck truck and the tow guys trying to figure out how to get it out.
From Kite Lake campground.
TH 5:15, Democrat summit 6:22, Demo-Cam Saddle 7:43, Cameron 8:30, Lincoln 8:50, Bross 9:49, Kite lake 11:15.
Beat the huge crowds by leaving at 5 a.m. on the busy Labor day Sunday. Was funny watching from the top of Lincoln as the herd was heading up Democrat. Nice folks, great weather and some idiot has a nice Toyota Tundra buried to the axles on the side of Bross's hiking trail, ouch!
On the stroll to Lincoln. Some douche had left his truck stuck near the summit.
