West Ridge  Sucess!

One of my favorite Tenmile/Mosquito ridges. Don't forget to run up West Dyer, it's a great little summit and good views of the rest of the ridge.

East ridge via Sherman and Gemini  Sucess!

Had to do this one solo as my climbing partner stopped before reaching the low point between Gemini and Dyer. (Smart!) The snow was deep and crested on the ridge. Looked dicey from a distance but was solid. Upper slopes of Dyer were completely snow covered and the wind was really blowing the snow around. Exhausting day, not too cold.

W Face  Sucess!

Fun Day with Eric Holle! Up Iowa Gulch to Dyer Ampitheatre, ascended over near w ridge, descended via glissade mid-face (more south). Knarly weather rolled in at top of amphitheatre, and lasted until 5 minutes after we made the summit. Then a beautiful day.

Route Climbed: West Face Date Climbed:April 11th, 2006  Sucess!

Climbed from Iowa Gulch and the Dyer Amphitheater with Timothy Pearl. Glissade descent. Crazy weather, fresh snow, sunny, blizzard-esqe, and then the weather cleared right after we got to the summit. We were provided with great views of Sheridan, Sherman and Gemini, as well as the picturesqe power-lines.

This is a really fun scramble route, stick directly the ridge crest for some nice class 4 gendarmes!

1st winter centennial! easy hike up the iowa gulch road and a pretty, winter hike up the slopes to the snow covered south ridge.

Route Climbed: Upper Iowa Gulch Date Climbed: June 11, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: 3/20/2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Via Sherman and Gemini Date Climbed: June 22, 2004  Sucess!

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.
