Breezy and snowy day on the east slopes - light new snow cover made the ski descent tricky.
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.
Great day. Nice views.
The mining activity that took place at nearly 14,000 feet on these peaks speaks of how tough those old miners were.
Good clean fun.
Did just Mt. Lincoln, passing over Cameron with Chad's brother Travis, sister Kelly and mom! Great hike for 14er newbies.
Our second 14er trip ever! Completed the 4-peak circuit. Don't remember much about it..except fun.
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.
Great day to get 4 peaks in one day!
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!
Easy hike. Went up over Cameron, out to Lincoln, then over to Bross before descending back to Kite Lake. 14er #11
Great alternate route to avoid the crowds.
Great winter route! Easy to avoid the dangerous spots, and enjoy total solitude.
Part of the fourpack.
After summiting Democrat & Cameron, went onto Lincoln, then Bross.
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.

Fast day...summitted Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross in 3 hours 5 min.
Late start with Aaron. First 14er for my son. We had fun!
