3 a.m direct ascent  Sucess!

Climbed this 14er the morning after my buddies and I were turned down mount tabeguache due to thunderstorms and hail. Was a beautiful clear night, saw about 6 shooting stars. We were up at 2 and were hiking by 3 since we had to catch a plane back to New York that day. It was really very serene, we ended up just hikin up the right face of the mountain (same side where trail goes) but more towards the middle. Great intro hike for the 14ers, also really fun at night.

What owner's block?  Sucess!

Heard rumors of a ban by the owners. Decided to head up there anyways. Found 1 little sign on the porta potty at the Kite Lake Trailhead but found plenty of other people hiking up. Wanted to do the 4 mountain circuit was it was quite windy and cold so did just Democrat.

Route: Kite Lake  Sucess!

Climbed this one with Old Guide as part of our annual summer father & son 14er climb. Beautiful weather early in the day which built into the normal summer storm clouds.

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.

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.
