Ascent Trip Report

The final piece of the Democrat, Lincoln, Bross summits. Decided to come down the west face of South Bross, which was a skree slope we thought we could navigate. The trail got steep enough we weren't able to turn back and had to continue down. We spread out on the slope so we wouldn't kick rocks onto each other and made our way very slowly. I was afraid that one of the 5 in our party would not be able to make it down. We made it down after several slow hours with many minor aches and sprains.
