morning walks  Sucess!

A roommate and I drove over from our house above Alma and made the Kite Lake loop a few times last summer. Always a blast, though usually crowded. Had to bust out with some crazy ninja tactics, as the wealthy mining claim owners stand guard with shotguns. Watch out.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake  Sucess!

We camped at the lake and six of us climbed up the rocky trial. We took photos of three generations of my friends, the McCullough's, in the old wooden structure on the summit. We were intending on also climbing Lincoln and Bross that day, but the gathering clouds altered our plans and we returned to camp with one memorable summit.

Route Climbed: Democrat-Lincon-Bross via Kite Lake Date Climbed: April 2005  Sucess!

Went out for a little solo manajatwa action (If that make sense) Well bagged Democrat in a jiffy. On my way to Lincoln I started to suffer for my speedy ascent and lack of acclimatization. On top of the gully I decided to nix Lincoln and head strait for Bross. After picking up one more peak for the day I beelined it back down to Kite-Lake. All in all a successful trip.

I think that's when I climbed it? Not sure, bad with dates!

Route Climbed: East face Date Climbed: August 1997  Sucess!

The best part of doing this trio of mountains is the time spent at high altitude. About 5 other people at the summit with me. Nice day, not too hot. That's about it.

Some fresh snow and cold winds on top. Still an easy hike from Kite Lake. Wanted to complete Decalibron but route was slick so I passed. 14er #6

Route Climbed: SW Ridge variation Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2005  Sucess!

We climbed a very frozen section of snow just to the north of the SE Ridge route. The slope measured between 35-40 degrees, and was very solid. This made a nice snow climb. I would carefully consider the snowpack when taking this route.

Route Climbed: via East Ridge Date Climbed: August 12th, 2003  Sucess!

The most exhausting one of the quad....the steep climb is quite an undertaking, and is not for the faint of heart....

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: Late September 2004  Sucess!

My wife Julie, her sister Kathleen and I summited. There was snow the whole way, quite chilly at the summit. We were told at the start that it was too hard, but started anyway. My sister in-law said that if she could do it, it wasn't very hard. Well others did not make it Kathleen and you did. We formed a small group of about 6 to descend. That was much harder than the climb. It was my wife's and sister-in-law's first fourteener.
