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.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake Date Climbed: 9/22/02  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake Date Climbed: Septermber 24, 2005  Sucess!

Good hike. Very windy. For beginners that want to climb multiple mountains in one day, this is the hike. All four mountains in 4hrs 30min.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: 8Sept04  Sucess!

White out, sleet and snow. Had to guide a stranger down. Make sure and go to some of the sites and visually memorize the way before you go. When it's beautiful, no problems, but... I can't say enough about not taking the easy way down- right through the scree fields. Hundreds of us do it, and then the mountains get torn right up. I know nature slides the hills, but we do it faster. The high trailhead makes for an easy 3 peak day. Still time to head to some hotsprings after.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Trail Date Climbed: June 11, 2005  Sucess!

It was a cold morning. About half of the trail was covered with snow. Some of it was knee deep. It made for a hard climb. We reached the summit in 3 1/2 hours. Awesome views from the top! Storm clouds were rolling in so we decided against trying for Lincoln & Bross. It snowed on us during the descent. Still a great day!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: 2 September 2005  Sucess!

Arrived at Kite Lake in the dark the night before and camped. Awoke to a GORGEOUS view of Democrat, Cameron, and Bross (Lincoln can't be seen from the lake) begging me to climb! Climbed all 4 that day with Democrat being the first test. It's a very different mountain with all the large boulders to climb over! View from the top was stupendous. Would definitely recommend.
