New Meetup: Democratic Row

From: kimmykazu
Sent on: Tuesday, July 26, 2011 9:02 PM

Announcing a new Meetup for Weekend Hikers...Plus!

What: Democratic Row
When: Saturday, September 17,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Random Breck address
411 S. Main Street
Breckenridge, CO 80424

So this is quite the combo! Even the 2nd time around. Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and possibly we can hit up Bross. Yes at least 3 14er summits in ONE day. We will do the standard route and you can read all about that at 14ers.com

http://14ers.com/routemain.php?route=bros6&peak=Mt.+Lincoln

Mt. Lincoln is just south of the Continental Divide. Mt. Bross (14,172'), Mt. Cameron (14,239') and Mt. Democrat (14,148') are all very close to Lincoln. Quandary Peak (14,265') can also be seen to the north.

Depending on who RSVP's yes, I will designate a meeting location that makes sense for all of us.  We will meet at  3:30 AM. AND if you are late, Please call to tell me but we will leave without you. It is imperative that we start hiking at 5:00. It's not just me being punctual, it's safety.   Here is your warning.

The address listed above IS NOT the TrailHead but I had to put something....

Start elevation-12,000

Summit elevation-14,286

Trip length RT-7.25-STRENUOUS!

Class TWO

Range-Mosquito

 

Please allot for your day to be dedicated to this climb. We will be having lunch(dinner) together afterwards and taking ONE car. Depending on who RSVP's, we might take two!  

Please include your phone number.  If you have not hiked me AND we do not get a chance to chat prior. You will not be going on this particular trip.

Sorry to be so mean.  BUT I have to make sure I know the physical ability of everyone prior. It could potentially compromise  hike time for the group which is ultimately   the safety.

  • Windbreaker/waterproof jacket/shell
  • Fleece/sweatshirt/something warm-Highly recommended TECH SHIRT. Dries fast!

Take Colorado 9 to Alma. In the middle of town and on the west side of the road, look for a small sign for the road to Kite Lake. Turn here and drive a bit through a residential area. Continue 6 miles to Kite Lake. The last mile of this road can be a bit more rough, but a good-clearance 2WD should still be able to make it when the road is dry. There are restrooms and some camping spots at the trailhead. You must pay a small fee to park/camp at Kite Lake. If you park below (no fee), walk up the road to Kite Lake.
