Long Day out
#3 of Decalibron. Thought I was too tired from Cameron but this was easier than it looked and pretty fun, even in the snow. Took about 35-40 minutes from Mt. Cameron.
From Kite lake. Favorite summit of the 4.
Did this with Dan. Full decalibron from Kite lake on a spectacular bluebird day. No wind and 70 degrees @ 14,000'
Climbed as part of the Decalibron loop.
Fantastic day but windy. Also did Cameron and Bross
Lincoln, Cameron, Democrat, Lincoln, with Cathy, Leann, & Roger.
From the east side both times.
Climbed past the icefall up the headwall in full on winter conditions. The clouds started clearing on the descent. There is cell phone reception on the summit! A general easy skiing, alpine, ice climbing mountain.
Nice views from the top. Did not stay long
Clouds began building so we decided to move quickly to Bross. Much of the trail between Lincoln and Bross was perfect for jogging.
4 hr C2C. Much easier than expected.
Turned back before attempting Lincoln and Bross due to sketchy looking clouds. Turns out we could have finished. Better safe than sorry though.
Hiked Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
Majestic approach. I could do without the trucks driving up Bross.
Climbed with C. Stephens.
Great skiing down the east slopes. See the comments section on the Putnam Gulch page for info on private land near the winter TH.
70 mphs winds and near frostbite! Glad I did this one though. Making the summit was worth the mean sunburn :-)
Nicely different than Kite Lake.
