Route Climbed: Mt Bross Road and Cameron-Democrat Ridge Date Climbed: July 15, 1994  Sucess!

I drove to Bross and climbed Lincoln. Not much of a climb, but then I did Democrat. I didn't carry any water, and the wind was really blowing. Crossing the connecting ridge was relatively easy but coming back was really hard. I got hypothermia from dehydration.

Route Climbed: Democrat-Lincoln-Bross traverse Date Climbed: August 1997  Sucess!

Knocking off 3 in one day is an awesome feeling! I think hiking these 3 gave me the desire to keep going and see if I can finish all 54 peaks in Colorado that are 14,000 or more feet high!

Route Climbed: South ridge Date Climbed: June 23 2000  Sucess!

Somehow I ended up at Lake Emma, Mt. Buckskin, some class 3 climbing, and a steep glissade on the descent. Definitely not the standard route. It was only my 2nd day at altitude (from Florida), not enough acclimation to do Lincoln and Bross today.

Route Climbed: Southeast Face I Date Climbed: Aug. 25, 2001  Sucess!

Easy summit after steep climb to East Ridge I. Very open and crowded, had to really search for a place to go the bathroom. Not one of the quieter peaks and definetly did not like the jeep road people can take almost all the way up Bross. Felt like Pikes Peak with cars at top of mountain.

I did this in the same day along with Bross and Lincoln. What a cool view back over to Freemont Pass.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake Date Climbed: 8-4-94  Sucess!

As is usual, this was the first of these 4 peaks we climbed that day....Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross, in that order. Beautiful hike, but certainly not alone. We chatted with many along the way, including a 7-yr-old boy on his way down who had just done his first 14er, and an older chap in his 80's who was making his annual birthday climb of this trio with the aid of a friend and a cane. We were impressed!!
