We had skipped this one previously when doing Bross and Democrat as I was having problems with my knee. We returned and summited Lincoln while on a trip back to CO. It was a slow painful day for Jennifer, but we made it. We had plans of doing quite a few peaks in those 10 days, but seing as she ripped a toenail off our first day out there this was the only peak we made. Great clear day, but very windy.
Great hike beginning and ending at Kite Lake in Pike National Forest. Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross in one day is great!
part of the loop. nice workout.
Great hike for all 3+ (Cameron ;) peaks. Enjoyed Lincoln the best since it was all pointy. :)
Drove up to Kite Lake and did the Decalibron route for Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross. The round trip time was about 6.5 hours. Got chased down Bross when the weather moved in, but all in all, it was a very good trip.
From Kite Lake after Democrat and Cameron. Reached Lincoln 20 min after Cameron on the circuit. Beautiful day - lots of snow but the trail was well packed.
Reached summit at about 9:20AM from Mt Democrat & Mt Cameron. Clear beautiful day with great views. Signed summit log, stayed about 15 mins then off for Mt Bross. My 7th 14'er!
3rd fourteener; great views, highest point so far!
Third leg of the Decalibron for us. This was a very cool summit, definitely the best of the four. We had great weather and fantastic views of the surrounding peaks.
One of the first 14-ers I did, this with Aaron Johnson. I've always had a fondness for this mountain--Lincoln's a good day out in the high country.
made the summit and had lots of company on the 4th of July.
After climbing Long's a few weeks ago...it seemed sick and wrong to sleep in late and bag 4 peaks with such minimal effort. Nice scenery and easy hiking don't make for solitude. Still a fun hike though.
Climbed with Mom, Dad, and little brother. Near a mine, we found part of a drill bit forged into a chisel.
The best summit of the 3; dramatic view via the approach.
Best of the 3 summits in this area.
Climbed with my 2 brothers. Did the triumvirate.
A fun day out up high.
Here's a (sorta) trip report.
early snow covered from parking lot up...fun day with son....lightning was a problem near summit...no place to go.
Nice easy 14er!
Hitting Lincoln, Democrat and Bross started a slight case of 14er fever.
