|Peak:||Mt. Democrat (14er)|
|Date of Info:||11/03/2013|
DeCaLiBron loop -- Very snow-free except for lower and western parts of Mt. Democrat. Snow is packed into all the trails, but intermittently. Surrounding talus relatively free of snow. Boot chains were not required though were helpful in places, but the snow was a little too patchy to warrant leaving them on. Alternative route up the south ridge saw a few snowdrifts up to the knees or waist, but only in chutes.
Mt. Bross and Mr. Cameron almost completely absent of snow, Mt. Lincoln looked pretty dry as well. Ridgelines are blown clean.
Drive up to Kite Lake had a couple inches of snow at the end and would be passable with a 2WD vehicle.
