The Decalibron II  Sucess!

Started out with an ascent of Mt. Buckskin, at 5:00am, then returned to Kite Lake and did 'The Decalibron II' route. Perfect weather, great views from up there. Got 5 in 1 day; a 13,865' peak & 4 14ers. Not bad for a Monday!

Democrat-Cameron Combo  Sucess!

Kite lake start in late september. About an inch of snow on the ground. Made the hike to democrat with no real problems, only blowing snow. Descended to the saddle and headed up Cameron. We arrived on top to a 60mph blizzard. since everyone had already done lincoln, we moved towards bross, but couldnt see the broad ridge in the whiteout, so we followed our tracks back down to the saddle and to the car.

Thunder and Snow  Sucess!

Was trying for the trifecta but got blown off by bad weather. I hope that girl that was still heading up in the lightning is still alive.

Triplet from Kite Lake  Sucess!

Made the trip round the horn, Lincoln > Cameron > Democrat > Bross. Had to park 2-3 miles from the trailhead for fear of my car which made for the day being a little longer.

Decalibron: 1st down  Sucess!

Climbed this group my 1st summer of peak bagging. Fire restrictions had cut access to these peaks until the end of July. As soon as they lifted the restrictions I went right for them, afraid they would shut them down again before I could bag them. Started from Kite Lake.

1 of "4" That Day  Sucess!

Depending on whether or not you consider Mt. Cameron a 14er, we completed Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross. There was still enough snow on Bross for a small glisade.

Kite Lake TH, Ascend Democrat E Ridge, Cross Cameron Point to Lincoln W Ridge, Descend Bross W Slopes to TH  Sucess!

Great Hike. Shoe Skiing down the scree from Bross made the descent perfect.

Route: East Ridge  Sucess!

Another first for me: I was sick all the way from the saddle to the summit. Had a few shots the night before and it wasn't pretty. Another lesson learned the hard way. Not even sure I looked around when I got to the summit.

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.
