Ascent Trip Report

Lincoln has some interesting views. Great views of the ranges around; interesting mining relics; and some nice pinnacles near the summit.

I summited Cameron in 1 hour and 20 minutes; I summited Lincoln in 1 hour and 45 minutes; then Bross somewhere around 2 hour and 15 minutes; headed back up and over Cameron again to avoid the feldspar quick sand that was complained about by those that came up the Mount Bross Trail. Thus, adding to the days mileage and vertical gain.
