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.
What an uninspiring summit (though not as bad as Bross). Great views and high wind. We motored on toward Lincoln without slowing down. Poor Cameron...
