Hiked the 4 peaks an a really clear Colorado day. Nice day outing.
My first winter 14er. Joe and I started with the 2-3 pitch Lincoln Falls just to make our route technical. Then found a line that somewhat resembled the normal route up to a snowfield, a ridge, and then the summit. 3 hours from the top of Lincoln Falls to the summit. Rappelled the falls in the dark!
The wind roared on Lincoln!!! But found a nice sheltered alcove to have a quiet lunch. Once we were back on the trail heading to Bross, the winds died down again. Weird.
If climb the rest of the decalibron you have to climb this peak.
Surprisingly short distance from Cameron--I think it took me 20 minutes between the two.
Felt like February.....postholing in snow to my knees and extremely strong winds.
I started late & was the last to leave the Trailhead. I summited Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross (shhhh!) despite the strong wind. Putting 20 lbs. of rocks inside my backpack helped since I'm only 119 lbs.
Happy 3rd wedding anniversary to Chris and Marni on the DeCaliBron. Rainy weather on and off all day but never any thunderstorms. Agree with everyone that this is the best of the 4.
Best peak and veiws of the four.
Loop from Kite Lake TH.
Old Guide and I climbed via the East ridge off of the Quartzville Creek TH. Beautiful day with only some minor wind.
Icy cold and windy on the summit.
I should try this in winter.
some deep snow in sections and plenty of Big cat prints (mountain lion or Linx?)
clear views, no clouds and first on summit!
Climbed via the old usual route to grab all three peaks. Wonderful day, cold beer at the end; with my wife, Mrs. Rat.
I started in the town of Alma, nice long day all by myself!
Four 14ers in one day. A pleasant hike but clouds obscured the views.
first winter fourteener with jamie this year!
climbed the east ridge from the cameron-democrat saddle with jamie and prakash. ended up being a lot longer of a day than we expected. hiked out in the dark from the kite lake outhouse to paris mill!
This was my first 14ner snowboard descent. The last 300 feet were brutal because I could see the summit within reach! Hard windcrust on top but 1000 feet down it softened right up.
DID LOOP FROM KITE LAKE TRAILHEAD
