|Peak:||Mt. Democrat (14er)|
|Date of Information:||09/21/2011|
Did the DeCaLiBron combo. Very windy, making it feel much colder than it was. Had to stop and find places to huddle and block the wind to warm up a few times. Trail itself was good - some snowy and icy spots here and there. Used crampons for part of the descent down Democrat (to easy my mind), but found that they weren't really necessary & took them off soon after putting them on. Main issue with the hike that day was the strong gusts of wind.
