Made it up the ridge above the "S Gully" on Bross to hit Lincoln and Cameron, but got some good shots of Bross and Democrat along the way, as well as the Kite Lake approach.

It is still pretty bare all around up high, and most of the upper Decalibron ridges are snow-free.

The Kite Lake approach looked OK, but there might be some potential slide paths to cross coming up to the Democrat-Cameron saddle. Tough to say from where we were, but the picture paints a decent story hopefully.

PM if interested in more info or pics from this section of the Decalibron

I am interested in doing my first winter ascent - I've heard this group is a good beginner. Just curious your thoughts on the best approach and mountains to attempt for a combo route. We're looking to go this Saturday. Also, was any special gear needed? My friends and I have hiked a number of 14ers, just never in the winter. Thanks!

I too am doing my first winter ascent. I have done the Triple Crown during the summer but not winter. I was wondering which rout you took and do you know anything about the parking at the Quartzville TH or the road conditions?
