I was 5 years old when I first climbed this mountain. Made it to the top before my dad!

Easy for sure and great 14er to take someone on that hasn't done one yet.

The first time we got this one it was from the Iowa Gulch side and it was some of the worst weather I have ever been out in. We literally could not see more that 10 feet in front of us due to the snow and the wind from the north that was really cranked up. The only way we knew we were on the summit ridge was the shelters that we could barely make out in front of us. The second time was also VERY windy, probably the strongest sustained wind I have been in. For such a tame looking peak, Sherman has a way of making you think twice about summiting it.

Easy trail on this sunny day except very windy in particular on the summit; feared to be blown off. Never experienced such wind gusts before! Started off at the Leavick Site. My little car just goes that far. Did not encounter anyone on this hike!

I wasn't looking forward to coming back to this mountain after nearly reaching the summit last year and having to turn around. I eventually decided to come back to finish it off. I made the summit in a little over 2 hours and saw a group of kids from a summer camp on the summit. On the way back down I misplaced my trekking pole and made a valiant attempt to find it again once I realized my mistake but it was gone.

This was the first 14'er I ever climbed. I was 8 years old a the time. This is the mountain that started me on the path that has now become an obsession. This page brings back a lot of memories. Thanks.

This was a very fun hike. The old mining buildings make this a great hike.

My only 14'er of the summer this year- not a good season for me- much too busy at work! Easy but fun, especially climbing with a group of friends (1st 14'er for several of them). #4 for Spencer the Mountain Dog.

MOOOOOOOOOO. I have never felt more like a cow in a cattle drive than on this peak. Literally HUNDREDS of other climbers out that day, and no that's not an exaggeration. Overcrowding was the only down-side, though. Other than that, this peak gets a bad rap, in my book. I counted at least 12 14ers that were visible from the summit, and the narrow summit ridge was suprising and fun (albeit not really designed for the interstate traffic it was seeing.) I say do this one EARLY in the morning to enjoy it before the crowds get there.

Where are the hardest best climbs? Are they in CO or CA? Ask any local and you'll get the locals biased opinion. My wife and I had finished all (-Starlight) the 14ers in California, and were visiting friends in Colorado. I decided to take my wife Synne up the easiest 14er I hadn't climbed to confirm her suspicions that California's 14ers are tougher/better Climbing Sherman certainly did the trick. Especially since one can see Elbert and Massive across the valley. My 13th and easiest Colorado 14er. What a nice hike though.

Pretty easy climb. This was my 6th 14er in as many days so I had planned for an "easy climb." Weather cooperated and this was indeed an easy walk up. Interesting mines along the way and a short glissade on the return route. It was about time to give my bod a break.

Another way too early day. At the summit very near sunrise and was all alone. Nice and peaceful, but way too early to get up and drive.

This was my second 14er. My first being Mt. Harvard, Sherman was a great boost to my ego. We reached the summit by 10:00, and hit 2 great glascades and were back to our cars early. It was a great climb.

Climbed with Jennifer. Started out about 1 1/2 miles below Leavick townsite. Used snowshoes over 1/2 of the trip. We descended a gully between White Ridge and the 4wd road and regained the road below the Dauntless Mine. We were the only people on the mountain that day.

We started below the usual spot so we could gain 3000 ft. Lots of snow on the usual route with a big cornice guarding the ridge so we went up a much steeper and longer path north of the standard route. The wind was extremely strong on the top of the ridge. The view was spectacular. We stayed on the summit for 2 minutes and left. The old mines on this route are very interesting to look at.

KaneRoute Climbed: north ridge via Gemini's east ridge route Date Climbed: 2001  Sucess!


Started at the Little Sacramento Th and ascended Gemini's huge, broad, grassy east ridge to the summit of Gemini. Descended and hiked .7 miles over Sherman's huge grassy north ridge to the summit. Descended and hiked .5 mile on talus to Mt. Sheridan. On the way back skirted Gemini's summit to the west and hiked Dyer Peak(another centennial 13er). Watch out for the power lines! Descended straight down into Sacramento Creek Drainage and back to the car. A long day. Only people I saw were hiking Sherman, otherwise I think I went 9 hours with meeting another soal. Those grassy broad ridges are really cool places to visit.
