Wintry Surprise  Sucess!

Standard Route from Kite Lake. Expecting to do the Decalibron, we were hampered by the early onset of winter. High winds overnight delayed our start and snow greatly slowed our ascent. Have to come back another day and bag the other three in a quick sweep - probably a little earlier in the year! It was beautiful, though.

Extended N. Ridge  Sucess!

Gained N. ridge from West side, North of point 13,400 and followed ridge up to summit. Swung down saddle and tagged Cameron and descended South side to Kite Lake.

Kite Lake  Sucess!

I hiked Democrat with some friends in preparation for Kilimanjaro. There were lots of hikers on the trail. It was cold and windy at the summit. Once we climbed this one, we headed back to the saddle to limb up Cameron.

Decalibron  Sucess!

From Kite Lake campground.
TH 5:15, Democrat summit 6:22, Demo-Cam Saddle 7:43, Cameron 8:30, Lincoln 8:50, Bross 9:49, Kite lake 11:15.
Beat the huge crowds by leaving at 5 a.m. on the busy Labor day Sunday. Was funny watching from the top of Lincoln as the herd was heading up Democrat. Nice folks, great weather and some idiot has a nice Toyota Tundra buried to the axles on the side of Bross's hiking trail, ouch!

1h from trailhead, in time to watch the sun rise. Some nice folks gave me a breakfast burrito at the summit.

Decalibron  Sucess!

Nice hike. Camped at Kite Lake, so did a TON of other people. If your looking for solitude this is not the place to be. Still, incredibly beautiful, lots of fun, good weather and easy access.

Windy Day on the Decalibron  Sucess!

First summit of the Decalibron. Started from Kite Lake at 6:30 and made it to the top of Democrat at 8:05. Easy but fun 14er!

Democrat-Lincoln  Sucess!

Democrat-Lincoln in a day. Tired feet. Couldn't find the motivation to hike over to Bross.

1st of 5  Sucess!

We did the Decalibron from Kite Lake. Democrat was a cool summit with killer views. We then did Quandary after the four peaks. Amazing area!!

Damn Thunderstorms  Sucess!

We were trying to make a loop of the 4 summits in this area. We made it up Democrat and then thunder started moving in. We decided to bail and head back to the parking lot. By the time we got back down it was beautiful out again with no rain or thunder at all. So we were either a couple hours too late or an hour too early. Either way, fun summit, if not a little disappointing.
