A lot more snow than I thought was going to be up there. A wonderful day, we were able to beat the weather.

Great views of Quandary from Lincoln. Did the Bross-Lincoln-Democrat trifecta...pretty easy to knock out all three at once.

After the initial climb up Democrat, my lung capacity (altitude adjustment!) & the ATP in my muscles were finally finding their rhythm- this was a great hike & great views as always!

Route Climbed: Started with west ridge Date Climbed: Aug 29 2002  Sucess!

I arrived Wed. night late. I had trouble finding my way to Kite Lake road. I wasn’t sure where the trailhead was but I made the right guess. I started hiking at 4:00am and summited the first peak at 5:45. It was still dark. That was pretty awesome. I grabbed a quick munch and moved on. The second summit was farther than I thought and wasn’t much to look at and didn’t even count. I continued on and summited Mt. Lincoln, the best out of the four. It was cold and windy so I didn’t even sit down. I moved back to the saddle and continued to Mt. Bross. It was an easy traverse on a mining road. After summiting Bross I descended down the west slope drainage, it was hell. I arrived back to my truck at around 9:30am.

Route Climbed: All 4 of Lincoln Group from Kite Lake TH Date Climbed: July 2005  Sucess!

Solo Trip - I've done Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross twice now. It's always a good early season hike to push myself. Running the ridges at 13,800 is true suffering. My last round trip of all four was four hours twenty-two minutes trailhead to trailhead. I rarely race a fourteener, but this group just seems to say "go ahead and suffer".

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: March 9, 1985  Sucess!

A winter climb with the CMC. Hard, windpacked snow (esp. on the descent from Bross) made me want crampons. We had all left the snowshoes at the cars, and the snow on the descent was too hard to kick steps and too rough to glissade.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: June 13, 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Ridge From Democrat Date Climbed: July 21, 1999  Sucess!

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.
