Ascent Trip Report

Since I had already climbed Mount Democrat in 1995, I was able to skip it, unlike most climbers, and focus on the other 14-teeners in the area. I climbed over the summit of Mount Cameron enroute to Mount Lincoln and reached Mount Lincoln in 4 hours (not including the time I spent on the summit of Mount Cameron). This is actually a slow time, so you will probably do better. Mount Lincoln has great views, like all 14-teeners, with Mount Cameron to the SW and Mount Bross to the south. I also found two benchmarks on the summit. The traverse from Mount Cameron to Mount Lincoln looks rather intimidating, but it is really much easier than it looks and I covered the distance in less than 30 minutes.
