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!
Did the whole route (for the second time) from Kite Lake with Trish, while Suzanne and Amber left us at the Democrat/Cameron saddle and did just Cameron/Lincoln/Bross. A beautiful, sunny day.
Boring hike. Only gets done because its a "14ner".
Lincoln ampitheatre route is a good alternative to the more crowded routes. Climbed Lincoln then traversed to Cameron, Bross, "South Bross", back to Cameron and over to Democrat. Nasty storm was coming in, so I quickly descended back to Cameron/Democrat saddle and then went down the steep scree slope to the north. From there I found the wheeler trail and hiked back out to the reservoir. Pretty long this way, but a good time.
reached it in fog and waited for clearing before heading to Bross
Good hike. Very windy. For beginners that want to climb multiple mountains in one day, this is the hike. All four mountains in 4hrs 30min.
