Route Climbed: Via Sherman and Gemini Date Climbed: June 22, 2004
I saw this mountain after I had climbed Sherman and Gemini, and made an enjoyable trip across the long narrow Gemini-Dyer saddle (yes, under the powerlines) and up to the summit. Great view of Elbert and Massive to the west. Also, good look at Sherman's west side.

Dyer makes for a nice side trip if your hiking Gemini or Sherman. I enjoyed the Little Sacramento Gulch approach up to Gemini. Although I have heard that there might be some private property issues with the appraoch.
Dyer is the proud owner of some ugly power lines that actually ascend over the Gemini/Dyer saddle. Those suckers buzzzz as well. What solitude I had on Gemini i lost quickly on Dyer.
Combine Gemini with Dyer Mountain and you can easily bust out two of Colorado's highest 100 with minimal effort.
I think Dyer's east face gets skied often as well.
