Great views and not many people on this one. The namesake cirque is spectacular. It looks even better with snow, so do it on a nice winter or spring day when the snow is consolidated, otherwise it will turn into a postholing nightmare. See my trip report.
Due to some avalanche areas me and asphazell had to do some off trail climbing with our snowshoes on, the summit log had not been signed since November
This was a solo hike with my sweet dog Logan. Following moderate 4WD roads all of the way from the TH to the NE ridge saddle just south of Peeless Mtn, the remainder of the ridge route was a nice "hands in the pockets" hike. We climbed Peerless on the return, but didn't continue to Sheridan, since I had climbed that previously.
A nice, easy hike to the summit. Great views of the Sawatch! Also a chance to preview some nice couloirs in the cirque.
A unique flat summit made up of tiny little scree. A great easy hike. Make sure you go check out Finnback Knob too! Combine with Sheridan and Sherman for a long day up high
This was an especialy memorable mountain for me as it was the first mountain I ever took my dog Sopris up. She was 10 months old at the time and I had just had her for two days. Her response to the alpin environment was pure ecstasy. The long traverse from Weston Pass makes for a memorable day up high.
Tried this one the previous May and didn't go far. The winds were really howling and visiblity was sketchy. Came back in January to some great conditions and had a fantastic time.
