seanoWest ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2016


A slightly contrived but fun way to do an otherwise unmemorable peak. It's way more interesting and pleasant than the standard power line route. Mini trip report.

Date Climbed: Mar 21, 2015


Kessler (my 12 year old son), I, and six other climbers (including on 13 year old) met in the morning to climb Dyer Mountain from the Leadville side. Kessler and I had to stay up late the night before, so we left at 3:45 AM, but were delayed on the road, so didn't reach the trailhead until 7 AM.

There were four skiers and four snowshoers. We all made steady progress up Iowa Gulch and into the Iowa Amphitheater. Once the sun hit the slopes of the mountain, it was intense! We applied sunscreen several times throughout the day, but Kessler and I still got too much sun.

We climbed the southwest sloped up to the summit ridge, which was followed to the summit. The day was sunny and bright and the views were nice.

Four people brought skis and the other four glissaded down.

It was a great climb, but the road at the end of the descent seem to drag on forever, at least on snowshoes.

Sacramento Creek Trailhead. Did Pennsylvania Mountain first then continued on to Evans-B. Climbed the class 3 (if you stay on ridge crest) connecting ridge to Dyer Mountain. Was also going to pick up Gemini and Sherman, but a storm blew in.

Beautiful day with fantastic views. I enjoyed the historic "mining junk" almost as much as the mountains! Good call with the Royal Crown hot Chai ;-) .

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2012


made a loop with Gemini and Sherman. Nothing too exciting but a good way to acclimate or something to do if you are short on time. If I lived in Colorado, I would save this for a winter ascent

Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2010


Did this circuit with Sherman and Gemini as well. Was a decent day in September. Coming from Dyer doing the class 3 W Ridge made this enjoyable.

We took the upper Iowa gulch route down to make it a somewhat of a loop.

Up to Dyer, over to Gemini, then Sherman. Clouds were building so I skipped Sheridan. Wish I'd done it - weather held. C'est la vie.
