bblack99Saddle and Back
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2009


Weather forecast was calling for 50+ mph winds kicking up after mid-morning and I just hadn't acclimatized myself well enough after one day at altitude. I changed my target to the saddle and got some great pictures then headed down to Fourmile Creek as the clouds started to build. I'll be back, Sherman!

A fun climb - there was an abnormally large snowfall that year, with a lot remaining even in August, so we got a nice glissade for part of the way down.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 1985


Four notable memories from this 1985 climb:

1. We had cheese on the top
2. It was very windy and my mom thought I was going to get blown off the top
3. I insisted on carrying this rock I found at the mine at the trailhead and I carried it all the way up!
4. I was a little altitude sick on the top.

lilmantisSherman winter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 14, 2009


Overnighted it in the bivy sack with Nick aka Dude That Must Hurt and the other Nick. Woke up to a -12 degree morning and a nice breakfast before heading up. Was nice to be at 14K for the first time since September and was very nice to get a 2nd winter ascent of a 14er.

Rush, Astrobassman and I made good time up this rock pile with heavy packs as part of our Denali 09 training. It is not a 'pretty' mountain with all the mining destruction. A great way to kick off the first full day of Spring.

Although we caught an August snowstorm, this was a very easy hike to a broad summit. Starting above tree line and overcast, there was not much to look at.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2008
Instead of a longer day on LaPlata we opted for a shorter amount of vertical on Sherman from the east. Carrying all the overnight gear, we biveyed on the summit and watched 4th of July fireworks around Fairplay. I was able to get some nice astrophotography in between 00:01 and 02:00........ came down in the wind the next day.

First 14er of 2008! Great day hiking Sherman with my great friend Nancy. Met up with a fellow southerner (Jeb) on the way to the summit and did a couple glissades down the snow slopes of Sherman.
