Ascent Trip Report

After summiting Democrat, we traversed over to the summit of Lincoln. There were more people at this summit, as some hikers began with Bross, and the Lincoln summit was essentially the halfway point from both directions. The hiking along the summit ridge was awesome, with a nice drop-off on both sides, but not too dangerous. I was slightly ahead of my dad when I reached the summit, so I had a few minutes to catch my breath and look around. Many of the other hikers had minor altitude sickness. Some were lying down, some were vomiting. My dad and I popped a few aspirin and sprinted over towards Bross.
