Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: 7-23-05  Sucess!

Weather was perfect, people were everywhere, all over the mtns. It was nice to see how many people are getting into hiking 14ers. Descending Bross was interesting with all the loose scree, it was almost easier to "ski" down the rocks.

Route Climbed: West Gulch from Kite Lake via Cameron Date Climbed: June 1, 2002  Sucess!

We climbed the mountain of the great emancipator in early June along with Cameron & Bross (we climbed Democrat on out honeymoon). It was a clold windy snowy early season day. Tis was nice because it kept the crowds away from Kite Lake.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: May 25, 2002  Sucess!

Easy summit from Cameron. I think it only took 15 minutes to reach the peak. Number 5 was great because the good republican, Honest Abe, was 138 feet taller than the opposing democratic mountain top.

Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: July 1, 2005  Sucess!

I thoroughly enjoyed this peak. The final section of the trail snakes creatively through the summit rocks, putting you on top in almost effortless fashion. This is a handsome peak, particularly from the traverse to Mount Bross.

Route Climbed: Traversed over from Bross, as part of Decalibron in reverse. Date Climbed: July 1, 2005  Sucess!

#2 for the day, doing the Decalibron in reverse. Nice sunny day, but super windy and somewhat chilly (about 32 at the TH at 6am). Not much snow left, ran this in running shoes w/ a light pack to train for the Pikes Peak Ascent.

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".
