Route Climbed: Decalibron Date Climbed: July 17, 2000  Sucess!

Summit was thick with fog so finding the summit from the plateau near Cameron was kind of fun. I remember mistaking a seated person for a cairn! Memorable!

Route Climbed: Lincoln Amphitheatre Date Climbed: August 7, 2002  Sucess!

We followed Roach's directions for this challenging route up Lincoln, and they worked well. The crux was crossing the Middle Fork of the South Platte, actually. Climbing up near the falls areas (where people ice climb in the winter) was a hoot -- some of the falls are quite lovely, including one that spills over this cube of a rock. Some bush belays are handy, and it would suck to climb this route when it's muddy. The Amphitheatre is somewhat laborious to cross due to a lot of big boulders. Some abnormally large spiders with webs stretching b/w the boulders in the low areas made our crossing even more interesting. A miserable scree slope led us to Lincoln's summit area. We descended our ascent route, just beating out an incoming storm. It started to rain while we packed up our gear at the TH. This route takes longer than its stats would indicate: 4.0 miles, 3370', but it took us 3.5 hours to summit. A trip report is available here

Route Climbed: DeCaLiBron Date Climbed: June 5, 2002  Sucess!

I soloed the DeCaLiBron. I was very pleased that the road had been grated because otherwise, my Prizm wouldn't have made it to Kite Lake. A few inches of snow fell the night before, but it melted very quickly. I though Democrat was the best of the trio.

Route Climbed: North face of democrat Date Climbed: May 2002  Sucess!

Summited from Platte gulch with climb of the north face couloirs on


This route was very quiet, and I recommend it for the (somewhat)

technically minded climbers.

Fun hike of the Lincoln group. No where else can you get 4 14ers so easily!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Date Climbed: August 23, 2003  Sucess!

This summit was by far my favorite of the three (Democrat, Lincoln, Bross). I really enjoyed the section from Cameron to Lincoln to Bross.

Route Climbed: Standard 4-banger combo Date Climbed: 23 August, 2003  Sucess!

By far the coolest of the 4 summits in the "circle" - pretty small and airy with a suprisingly gnarly little face off to the south. Definately more of a "top of the world" feeling than on top of the parking lot sized summit of Bross. Cool peak.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake Trailhead Date Climbed: August 9, 2003  Sucess!

My climbing partner Tim and I reached the summit of Mount Lincoln on Saturday, August 9, 2003. This was Tim’s first official 14’er with Cameron being his actual first “unofficial 14’er.” We set out to climb only Lincoln and Bross leaving Democrat off the circle traverse as I had reached its summit earlier this year with a fellow climber.

Route Climbed: Kite Lake via Mt. Democrat and Mt. Cameron Date Climbed: July 9, 2003  Sucess!

Mt. Lincoln looked a little spooky to me from Mt. Cameron, but it was pretty easy to get to on the out and back trail from Cameron. I think it was here that we first noticed all the trucks up on Bross! How crazy is that!!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake via Democrat/Cameron Date Climbed: 7/9/03  Sucess!

Well many people talk about how easy these mountain are, but it is still along day. After making the saddle between Democrat and Cameron, it was time to start back up. Followed the easy trail to the top of Cameron. After reaching the east side of Cameron, we found a large snow field and got 200' glissade or so. It was a nice change of pace for the day. Anyway, reached the saddle between Cameron and Lincoln and started towards the summit. Made the summit in about 20 minutes. I was suprised to find that the Lincoln summit has a little exposure. It is for sure the most exciting of the 4 that I would be on that day.
