Met old friends for biannual western trip. Less than 24 hours after flying in planned triple 14'ers. This was 3rd and final. Nice snowfall up high.
A nice hike with my dad, but it was really crowded.
Summit #3. Outstanding views. I would go back just to sit up there a bit longer.
Easy over from Cameron. Spooked a goat at the first bump and he took off for Cameron. Noticed some clouds forming so took off for Bross quickly.
Climbed standard with the other giants. Best looking summit of the four.
Bagged Lincoln as the third of four Fourteeners which are part of the Decalibron Loop. Super fun and not very hard. The loop was one of my top-3 favorite hikes I've done so far since living in CO.
Long Day out
#3 of Decalibron. Thought I was too tired from Cameron but this was easier than it looked and pretty fun, even in the snow. Took about 35-40 minutes from Mt. Cameron.
From Kite lake. Favorite summit of the 4.
Did this with Dan. Full decalibron from Kite lake on a spectacular bluebird day. No wind and 70 degrees @ 14,000'
Climbed as part of the Decalibron loop.
Fantastic day but windy. Also did Cameron and Bross
Lincoln, Cameron, Democrat, Lincoln, with Cathy, Leann, & Roger.
From the east side both times.
Climbed past the icefall up the headwall in full on winter conditions. The clouds started clearing on the descent. There is cell phone reception on the summit! A general easy skiing, alpine, ice climbing mountain.
Nice views from the top. Did not stay long
Clouds began building so we decided to move quickly to Bross. Much of the trail between Lincoln and Bross was perfect for jogging.
4 hr C2C. Much easier than expected.
Turned back before attempting Lincoln and Bross due to sketchy looking clouds. Turns out we could have finished. Better safe than sorry though.
Hiked Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
