Route description: The climb is an easy walk when the conditions are nice as we experienced it.
Comments: Having just arrived back in the US, this was my first trip with Pål Jørgen, age 11. We climbed Democrat as the first 14.000 feet mountain that day, Mt. Lincoln being the second and Mt. Bross being the third. The entire trip from the car and back took us 4 hours, it should be stressed that the conditions were close to ideal.
