Project Description

Mount Democrat, a 14,155-foot-high mountain, rises only east of the Continental Divide at the northern end of the Mosquito Range, a long rocky edge with four 14,000-foot crests that runs south from the Divide and Hoosier Pass to the twin Buffalo Peaks above Buena Vista in focal Colorado.

Great Fourteener for Beginners

Mount Democrat, Colorado’s 29th most elevated crest, is one of the least demanding of Colorado’s 54 or 55 Fourteeners (contingent upon which criteria you use to choose what is a Fourteener). Democrat without anyone else’s input is an extraordinary move for fledgling mountain dwellers and kids and swamp mountain climbers unaccustomed to Colorado’s slender air, making them inclined to elevation disorder. Mount Democrat, be that as it may, is normally moved in a day with two adjacent crests—14,286-foot Mount Lincoln and 14,172-foot Mount Bross—permitting climbers to effectively sack three Fourteeners. Mount Sherman, another simple Fourteener, is twelve miles toward the south.

Mount Democrat, Colorado’s 29th most elevated top, is a quick climb on the off chance that you are fit since you can stop at 12,000 feet at Kite Lake, leaving just 2,000 feet of height addition to the summit and a round-outing trek of four miles.

Since it is near the Front Range urban areas and is generally simple to climb, Mount Democrat is extremely prominent in summer, especially on weekends. Attempt to arrange your rising on a weekday to stay away from group.

The best time to climb Mount Democrat is from early June to mid-September.
