Winter Lincoln  Sucess!

Breezy and snowy day on the east slopes - light new snow cover made the ski descent tricky.

NE/E ridge  Sucess!

Climbed this nice winter route during a day that turned from sun slowly to blizzard, a fun day. Climbed up R of Lincoln Falls ice climbing, then gained the ridge on the R of the main drainage and followed it over the S? face on our left, beautiful position, up to broad open slopes above the cabin at the end of the narrow part of the ridge. Ridge kept us mainly free of avalanche hazard (except for down by ice climbing)but the acummulating windblown new snow and the need to use the better snow right on the edge of the S face kept it a little spicy. Good time, I would recommend this as a winter route.

Democrat, Lincoln & Bross

The mining activity that took place at nearly 14,000 feet on these peaks speaks of how tough those old miners were.

High winds

Climbed in late october 03 in a rough wind day. Probably at least 40-50 sustained probably higher on the Lincoln Bross saddle since I was picked up a few feet there. Once we gained the ridge between Democrat and Cameroon, by the Lincoln Bross sadle we had to crawl for sections. Overall a quick circuit and alot of fun despite the winds.

Route Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: August 1997  Sucess!

Did this together with Bross and Democrat (like everyone else!). Lots of people up here today. Met some mountain bikers who took the mining roads from Bross up. I glissaded down the scree slopes on Bross to attain the lower gulch, not recommended. Tore a hole through my pants!

Route Climbed: via East Shoulder Date Climbed: August 12th, 2003  Sucess!

I spend hours trying to locate this Quartzville Creek Trailhead cause being on a budget/broke college guy I didn't feel like forking over cash for crashing at Kite Lake.....thus after finally finding this "trailhead" I spent a peaceful and quiet night alone in the view of the valley and the massive peaks. The next morning I headed out for Lincoln, this rarely used trail provided for some history as I passed thru demolished mines....the summit itself was not so impressive.
