Lincoln  Sucess!

Kimberly, Shaylee, Kimberly and I set off to climb Mount Democrat, Mount Cameron, and Mount Lincoln.

It was a rough night before and the evening of July 3 was very windy. The tent kept blowing down at Kite Lake which was above timberline. We had left our smaller low profile tents home because at the time we weren’t thinking of camping at Kite Lake and it was a last minute decision (and a not very good one). After several trial and error experiences keeping the tent from blowing away we finally got it anchored down good, but a big gust bent the poles and ripped the tent making it unusable. We spent a long night squished in the vehicles.

After waking up after a not-so-restful night we set off for the Cameron/Democrat Saddle. We climbed to the saddle and rested, making the trip in a fast (for a five year old) 1.5 hours. I let the kids decided if they wanted to climb Democrat or Lincoln first and they wanted to Lincoln first since it was the highest. We make the nice ridge over Cameron (which is only an “unofficial peak” because it doesn’t have enough rise over the connecting saddle to be a real peak) and over to Lincoln and reached the summit in about 3 hours from Kite Lake. It was still too early for lunch so we had a long snack.

It was somewhat cloudy to the west so we decided to forego Democrat and head down a secondary route near Mount Bross. We had at first planned to skip that summit (the opened section of the trail bypasses 100 feet below the summit), but I met a group of hikers returning from Mount Bross that explained that some of the owners of the mining claims were up there in vehicles (there is a private jeep road up there from the west side of Bross) and were granting hikers permission to summit the peak. I ran ahead to talk to them, but could see them heading back in their vehicles just before I reached the junction. We asked another of hikers if they had talked to the people in the vehicles and they said no. It was snowing lightly, but there was no sign or sound of thunder so we went over the summit of Bross and down the monotonous scree slope and back to Kite Lake. The round trip was a fast 5.5 hours Kite Lake to Kite Lake.

Lincoln was a nice climb and a pretty one, but my original thoughts on Bross remain (I had climbed the peak in February 2005). Bross is still a monotonous pile of scree with few redeeming traits. Lincoln was the highlight of the trip and other than the blown apart tent the night before, the climb was a good one.

first winter 14er  Sucess!

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!

Via Bross  Sucess!

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.

Decalibron  Sucess!

Surprisingly short distance from Cameron--I think it took me 20 minutes between the two.

Decalibron  Sucess!

Felt like February.....postholing in snow to my knees and extremely strong winds.

Against the Wind  Sucess!

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.

Nice view  Sucess!

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.
