myroneRoute Climbed: From the mine, don't know what this is called?? Date Climbed: Sunday July 3, 2005  Sucess!


Got a late start, started up at 8:02AM. Reached the summit via scree-filled gully,(I didn't know any better, not bad) yet the fastest way to the top, summited at 9:20AM. Stayed about 18 mins then back down with lots of people coming up, glissaded going down, back to the car at 10:40AM, my 13th 14'er, sweet!!

Climbed with my buddy JFA. We encountered high winds from the saddle to the summit, but overall this was a straightforward and relatively easy hike.

Warm day for Colorado, and a good bit of traffic on the trail.

This mountain is FULL of trails- heading in every which direction.... my suggestion? Do as we did, ignore them, and create your own:-) Yeah, we decided to go straight vertically up the mountain on the scree... now THAT is the way to climb what is otherwise considered to be an "easy" 14er!:-) Oh, and can we say "mines?!" They are everywhere! Though unsafe, they are a blast to approach from a distance and check out! Be adventurous here!

Hey yo! I thought u'd contribute to more erosion if u make your own trail up the peak.

In the winter you have to park prior to reaching the Leavick Townsite so be prepared for the extra mileage you can (usually) easily avoid avalanche conditions

You know you had a nice winter day of climbing when there are people on the summit with their shirts off posing for the photographer! I hear winds on this summit can be insane, glad we were so fortunate with such incredible weather!

ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: Fourmile Creek and Iowa Gulch routes Date Climbed: July 23, 1983  Sucess!


In 1983 and again in 1988 I climbed from Leavick to the south ridge, by the "standard route". On Sept. 27, 1992 I started from high in Iowa Gulch, climbing Dyer Mtn by the SE Slopes route and continued ESE along the narrow ridge to Gemini (Class II). The walk south from Gemini to Sherman's summit is an easy stroll on a high plateau, with the summit in view the entire way. From the summit I continued south to the Sherman/Sheridan saddle, and then returned to the west from there along a lightly used trail along the northern side of this drainage (not on the maps) and some scree, where the trail had disappeared over the years. This is a nice tour that avoids most of the crowds and allows more summits to be climbed as well.

The snow made it possible to slide down from the saddle.

Alex Wann

For me this trip was a first for many things. It was my first 14 thousand ft. peak, my first winter ascent, my first moonlight trek, and my first time climbing with an ice axe! And oh how sweet and intense this climb was. Even though I was exhausted at the end (mostly due to the stinking powder in the valley at the base of the peak) I know that I will be back for more.

What an awesome climb! Mt. Sherman is definitely a good beginning fourteener for novice climbers, especially in winter. I climbed Sherman with Wildman21, Alex Wann, and Trevor Simmons, and it was my first winter summit of a fourteener. We climbed it under a full moon and had a blast--not to mention the south ridge before the summit was wild to cross in the wind and driving snow. It was great.

I climbed with Trevor Simmons, Alex Wann, and Dylan Wann. The climb was wonderful. The moonlit night climb was spectacular, and the final push to the summit was in near zero visibility in the driving snow. After leaving our camp at 1:00am, we finally reached the summit a couple hours before sunrise at 5:00am. Mount Sherman was a most rewarding climb.

Trevor Simmons

I climbed with Wildman21, Alex Wann, and Dylan Wann. We started climbing at 1:00 AM and summitted at 5:00 AM. Shortly after we reached the summit, extremely strong winds and snow made the moonlight trek down miserable. The climb was good, save post-holing and painful scree slogging. The summit ridge was very fun and rewarding, though!

Yet another awesome day! Parked a mile shy of Leavick due to 8" of snow on the road and bad tires. Snowshoes and crampons weren't necessary, but were a plus in spots. Standard ascent up the ridge had significant, avalanche-looking-potential kinda snow on it so, we ascended closer to the summit where there was very little snow and much talus protruding through. Endured a headwind for most of the ascent, but nothing compared to the ridge. The ridge was unfairly windy and a few gusts had me fearing I might literally get blown off. Even with the wind, the day was perfect, cobalt blue skies and beautiful views as always! Oh yeah, and don't forget your gaitors...I did.... :(

From the four wheel drive trailhead this is a relatively easy fourteener with only one short narrow section that was a little sketchy due to high winds. Great views of Elbert and Massive to the west.
