|Climbed Dyer along with Gemini at night under clear skies. Seemed the most asthetic way to climb them with all the power lines up there.|

|Hiked to the head of the Iowa Ampitheater, then headed up to the south ridge. The south ridge was interesting (drifted and rocky) for the final 300 or 400 feet.|

|From the TH in Iowa Gulch I followed the road into the Iowa Amphitheater before angling up the mountain's slopes. I intersected the south ridge atabout 13,600', but almost any route will go on this side, as the rock is not very loose and is mixed w/ tundra. Although Dyer was my primary objective this day, this was one of the easier climbs I had done, and not being tired at all, my dog Logan and I continued over Gemini and Sherman, and down to iowa Gulch and our car from the Sherman/Sheridan saddle.|

|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.
