Ascent Trip Report

The Decalibron as it's known (DEmocrat, CAmeron, LIncoln, and BRoss) is a popular loop. Aside from Democrat which is a slight diversion, Cameron is on the way up Lincoln and Bross is on the way down (though there is a bypass allowing one to miss Bross if one chooses to).

Most of the loop is fairly descent terrain, but the descent from Bross is over very steep, loose, rocky terrain.
