Ascent Trip Report

Started out at Kite Lake TH - 12,000 ft! Loop up Democrat over to Cameron and Lincoln and across to Bross was supposed to be 7 miles and 3,500 ft of elevation - but was way tougher! Extra switchbacks added distance and very tough rocky steep trail on the way down added difficulty. Was tough climb - altitude did not get any easier even after a week! Lincoln was particularly cool - looked like the moon. Lots of old abandoned mine shafts. Public access to Bross was closed but we got the summit.
