mountainloverCOEasy 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2006


Easy, easy hike. Decent views from the top, but Sherman certainly is one of the ugliest 14ers I've encountered.

Attempted my first winter 14er ascent. Started from the winter TH at the ARSCO mine. I was unsuccessful but I enjoyed the experience. Check out my Trip Report 8000 Post Holes to Nowhere.

god awfully windy day, perfectly clear through out the entire day though. I lost my sunglasses on this mountain. Anybody finds a pair it's probably mine.

Weather looked so so in the morning, but the sun came out as I reached the summit. Soon the clouds disappeared and I went and did Sheridan as well. On my way down, I coud not resist photographing some gorgeous wildflowers that were abundant by the creek. My slideshow is here: Mount Sherman and Sheridan from Fourmile Creek

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2002


We were heading from Salt Lake to Denver to a wedding and decided to stop off near Leadville for a snowy climb before heading into the big city. Whiteout conditions on the top, but nice weather on the way down.

Parked at the winter TH at the ASARCO mine, slogged up the road to the Iowa Amphitheater. After summitting Gemini Peak in 40mph winds, continued over to Mt. Sherman in nice calm, 20-25mph winds. 3rd time to summitt Mt. Sherman. Wrapped up the hike with summitting Mt. Sheridan. Great Solo day.

Date Climbed: Oct 10, 1993


Catching up--or revising history--again. My wife's first 14er; my 9th (I think). An amazingly warm day for October.
Drove so high (in a 2WD vehicle) that it was a "cheat. One day I'll repeat it, and do 3,000 ft. Saw a rabbit the size of a goat on the way down.

Made it after an unsuccessful attempt the previous day due to weather. Got stormy during descent. Probably the easiest fourteener.

Did this as a trail run from the gate. First big storm of the season was blowing in, 50mph gusts along the ridge... I guess no more running shoes this year. Not the most inspiring mountain I've climbed, but any day out is a nice day out :-)

It was a nice easy climb through the clouds, then at 13,500' we emerged above the clouds. Beautiful view!

bjd5578A fun May hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2006


A work friend invited us along to climb Mt. Sherman (the day before I did the Bolder Boulder). This was originally my 3rd 14er, and we had climbed it from the Leadville side, so climbing from Alma seemed like fun to us!

We hiked up on a sunny cool May morning, and had the pleasure of glissading down almost 1000 feet - what a way to descend a peak.

BeginnerClimberEverything today  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


Took a newbie climber with me today up Mt Sherman. We knew the weather wouldn't be the greatest today, as lightning storms pelted the mountains during our trip to Fairplay from Col Springs before dawn. Made the gate at 6:45AM and the trail was clear and the night rain had just quit (the lightning stopped at 6AM -- phew!). Turns out snow fell on the higher elevations the night before! We weren't 100% prepared for snow but pressed anyway at 7:30. Met the snow at about 12,700ft, and was amazed at the mining buildings still standing. We had virgin snow all the way to the summit, which we made at 9:15AM amongst snow clouds which were wanting to burst at the seems. Sat around and waited for the second group to join us, then we started down. Almost immediately the snow and wind kicked up, and realized that the virgin snow was quickly being pressed into ice by the other climbers. Good thing we were first on the summit! Anyway, around 13,500ft, the snow turned to a rain/snow/hail mix (harder than groppel) and pelted us til we got back to the mining buildings. Ironically, the trail head was nice and sunny, and made it down before 11AM. Not a bad first 14er for my young friend, and this made my 8th. So, let's recap: lightning, rain, snow, virgin snow, fog, snow/rain/hail mix, hard rain, sunny.

So, remember the storm that pelted us on the way down? We made it to Fairplay an hour later and sat at my favorite American/Chinese restaurant (anyone eat there?) and that storm had gotten very very angry. For about 15 minutes while we ate, the restaurant was host to a torrential downpour. Made it back to Colorado Springs, and I swear the same storm pelted my house with lightning and hard rain for another 20-30 minutes 4 hours later.

Great climb today!
