It feels so nice to bag 3.2 (Cameron- hey, it has a name, why not give it a .2?!) 14ers in a day:-) I love climbing these things, but having recently moved 4,000 feet in elevation lower to Greeley... the altitude gets me at the start of every 14er hike, so Democrat wasn't quite as enjoyable as the others, but of course I still love it! Made it through the initial "uck" feelings, & had a wonderful day! 14ers ROCK!:-)

Route Climbed: Tour De Lincoln Group Date Climbed: 6/2004  Sucess!

I love this hike! I've done it about five times and last spring I went at it as a post Rainier workout. I took my video camera and spent quite a bit time setting up shots, but still got my best time...4 hours 24 minutes Jeep to Jeep. Running between the summit of Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross is an energizing experience... rock on!

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: July 18, 2004  Sucess!

This was a gloomy day with a summit masked in clouds. It was a unique summit view (or lack thereof).

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: Sept. 5, 2004  Sucess!

Whiteout! and Wind! Those were the conditions the whole way to the top. The trail was hard to find because it was snowing so much, especially on the way down. The wind was blowing so hard on the summit it was very hard to even take a picture. I signed the summit log, but it looked as though someone spit ink on the paper and thought it might resemble a name, the wind was seriously insane. I had planned on hiking the "loop" but weather wouldn't allow that to happen. I will definately be back to finish my "loop".

Route Climbed: Northeast Slopes Date Climbed: August 2002  Sucess!

This was my first fourteener and much more than I expected. The endless scree on the slopes above the saddle is really obnoxious. Still a great climb however, and a wonderfull introduction to fourteeners.

This was a grad hike for Wilderness Trekking School with the CMC. Was a fun trip with some nice, LONG glissades down the west couloirs!

Route Climbed: East Ridge/Standard Route Date Climbed: July 15, 1984  Sucess!

A very nice first fourteener, although this was my ninth. Climbed this with the CMC and continued to Cameron and Bross. The leader felt the weather was too iffy to nail Lincoln that day. So I came back w/ the CMC the following March and climbed it then.



I'd be interested in knowing if anyone has climbed, and can describe, the Southwest Ridge from the Democrat Buckskin saddle. On paper it looks like it could be a classic route.

Drove up to Kite Lake and did the Decalibron route for Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. The round trip time was about 6.5 hours. Got chased down Bross when the weather moved in, but all in all, it was a very good trip.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake Date Climbed: Saturday September 18,2004  Sucess!

Started up at 6:30AM, ended-up rock scrambling, missing the saddle, and heading straight up to the false summit and on to the summit. Reached the top at 7:50AM, nobody there, stayed about 15 mins and then off for Mt Cameron & Mt Lincoln. Beautiful, clear, but windy and cool. My 5th 14'er!
