Windy!  Sucess!

Went with Mike Smith and Shawn Donnelly (and dogs Okie and Jolie) - Kathy felt that it was too cold and stayed at the car. It certainly was cold to start out with, but then it really became about the wind. Seemed very similar to the 14ers.com Horn Fork fest last week on Columbia - which was clocked at 55mph. I recorded a temp of 10F on the summit, which would put wind chill at about -18F. Very rewarding hike!

Via Sheridan & Peerless  Sucess!

I climbed Horseshoe Mtn. with my sister (her 1st centennial 13er). Horseshoe was the final bump of the day for us having hit up Sheridan and Peerless first after starting near the Dauntless Mine. I love Horseshoe, but this whole area makes me appreciate designated wilderness areas all the more. All the lazy people driving ATVs and 4WD vehicles all the way up to the saddle between Horseshoe and Peerless were quite a nuisance.

another great day  Sucess!

Another great day in the mountains. We enjoyed some solitude at the summit. Thank goodness the crowds flock to Sherman nearby instead of this mountain.

Beautiful!  Sucess!

Nice and easy hike. Weather was overcast, wanted to stay close to Denver and went for this peak, no regrets, beautiful hike.

Windy!  Sucess!

Lovely views of the handsome cirque on the way up from Fourmile Creek Rd. Menacing winds upon entering the saddle and the final romp of the ridge to the summit.

Fourmile repeat  Sucess!

Hiked with the 14ers.com spring outing group on a fairly pleasant spring day, although the wind was a bit of a nuisance. Added on Finnback, Peerless, Sheridan, Sherman, and White Ridge.

Fourmile Creek   Sucess!

Combo beginning with Sheridan and Peerless. Some postholing and lots of wind, but few clouds. Brought crampons, but didn't need them. Nice hike with great views. 4H RT.

A DAY OF FIRSTS  Sucess!

First time above tree line. First time to "climb" anything. First time to "traverse" anything (Peerless). First time to sign a summit log. That was a great surprise, by the way. Did not know that there was such a thing.
Thanks Deb, Sarah, Todd & Sherri for a great climb.

Fourmile Creek   Sucess!

FINALLY! After being thwarted three other times (once by whiteout, once by a partner's real estate schedule and once by sketchy avy conditions) I finally made the summit of this peak on a beautiful, if blustery, June day. Partners: Deb and her good friends Candy & Todd and Cheryl. Dog: Stimpy.

Soupy Fog  Sucess!

Wanted to climb the Boudoir Couloir however the snow had already seen it's peak. Fresh snow, warm weather and soupy fog made for an interesting climb. Couldn't see a thing from the top!

3 of 3  Sucess!

Came via Peerless and Sheridan and was relieved to be able to descend from the ridge and get out of the wind!

This was my first climb of Horseshoe. We climbed Sheridan & Peerless also. I returned to this group in 2001.

Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

CMC hike. We alternated between hiking on the mining roads and the ridge separating Horseshoe Gulch and Fourmile Creek. The weather was almost perfect. It was pretty windy at the Horseshoe/Peerless saddle, and we had a few drops of rain, but that was all. There was only one other hiker with his dog on Horseshoe. Lots of people were headed up Sherman. Once we were done on Horseshoe, we headed on over to Peerless Mountain.

whiteout  Sucess!

and then sunny by Peerless and Sheridan. Went up the Boudoir Couloir with a friendly bunch from the CMC. Was actually underwhelmed by the couloir itself, but had a fine time all around.
