Started climbing around 7pm and summitted around 8:15 and hanging out on top for awhile. We were racing an incoming storm which was to start dumping snow around midnight. We then hurried down and drove out from Kite Lake right as snow started around 11.
Mt Democrat and Mt Cameron from Kite Lake Trailhead
An easy summit with great people
Climbed with my teenage daughter, aka gazelle.
Summited Democrat as part of the cuadruple summit tour from Kite Lake on a windy morning. The creek was running pretty high even before sunrise. Total time for the tour was 4 hours.
4 hr C2C. Much easier than expected.
Great loop with the other 14ers in the Mosquito Range
Terrible weather and a very short night of sleep before, but super easy and really beautiful.
Middle of August and there was 3 feet of fresh snow, and cold!
Hiked Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
It was a little cold for July. There were lots of shivering people wearing shorts. 14,000 feet is different than Denver, people.
About as much fun as you can have on Democrat.
Straightforward climb via the standard route
Clear skies and beautiful views!
Great day weatherwise, hit the trail around 8 and was at the summit with a crowd (25+) around 9:40 before I continued on to Mt Cameron then Mt Lincoln and returning through very difficult disuse trail and lots of scree on the mountain side sliding my way most of the way down. Stunning views from Mt Democrat to be topped by those of Mt Lincoln's. All in all fantastic and very enjoyable trip.
Climbed with C. Stephens
Forced Down By a Thunderstorm TR
Snowshoes up to a nice windblown summit. Great day!
Last day of winter, according to the calendar, not mother nature. We wanted to do Democrat and Cameron, as I only had those two left in that range, but winds (crazy) prevented us from getting over to Cameron. There's always next time.
