Ascent Trip ReportFor the description of the previous part of this hike, please see my trip report on Mount Cameron.
From the saddle with Mount Cameron, the trail forks: the more direct path heading northeast and up to nearby Mount Lincoln, and the other bending south and heading down toward the saddle with Mount Bross.
I was still feeling fantastic and focused on pushing myself, so I quickly strode up the trail to the summit. The same stuff here: register, sign, cairn, people, and also a little photo book of some sort that someone left. there was a good view of Quandary Peak to the north. Eric had wanted to meet up here for a group summit shot with Tim. So I parked it and took some photos and waited.
The wind was blowing moderately and I was sweaty from pushing so hard, and soon got cold sitting around. After 33 minutes on the summit, and neither Tim or Eric in sight (I could see Cameron's summit down the hill), I decided to press on to Mount Bross. I headed down the hill, moving a little stiffly, and back to the saddle with Cameron. From there, the trail to Bross branches off and skirts the eastern base of Cameron, and drops to a lower saddle with Bross. I was still cold and decided to start running, which felt really good.
For the final portion of this hike, please see my trip report on Mount Bross.
