At 14,148 feet, Mt Democrat is a fun climb and is a mere 2150 feet of vertical climb. On this day, David Fedler and I met a group of individuals from Kansas that were so thrilled to summit Democrat. Many were on their phones calling loved ones and sharing their success. The good will, encouragement and camaraderie with fellow climbers is truly inspiring. We managed to take a group shot for them before they headed down.
