Fun west ridge
Nice hike across the mountain tops! Great weather, and back then, not to many people!
Great day of winter climbing. Loved Lincoln as much as the others.
Skinned and skied this route with my husband, sisyphus (Ed). My first 14er ski descent!
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.
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.
PARK COUNTY RULES!!!!
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.
One of 4 peak loop.
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.
#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.
Climbed, Democrat (Southeast Face), Cameron, Lincoln, Bross, and South Bross. Great hike with lots of time spent at altitude. Took approximately 6 hours for the trip.
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!
