With Dyer, Gemini, and Sherman - 7.5 miles and about 3,500' of gain
S Ridge of Dyer; on to Gemini; Sherman; and Sheridan. First thunder of the day when atop Sheridan at 10.15am. Dropped off the low point between Sheridan and W Sheridan
Tacked Sheridan on after coming down from Sherman. High winds limited my time up there but the views were great. There was now snow on the route up from Iowa Gulch.
We did this as a scramble from the east side before walking over to Sherman
Started around 8AM at Fourmile Creek. No problems getting to upper trailhead. Lots of people, more than one hundred easily. A little over an hour to Sherman summit. Climbed Mt Sheridan afterwards via shared saddle. Some snow slopes to make from rapid decent.
Skinned up Sheridan, rode a nice slope just north of a big cornice to the saddle, then down to the mine en route to Sherman. Skinned up Sherman, summited, then skied off the summit to the saddle directly East. Found a narrow, steep (but nice snow) gully and skied that to almost my car. Great day!!!! Met some guy named CJ.
Really cool side trip from Mount Sherman, great views.
I was pretty slow going to the top. Great views though. Seven hours for Sherman, Sheridan, and Gemini.
Loop starting from Dyer. With the wife and pup. Had a bit of a lightning experience on Sheridan.
Had the time, the inclination and the wherewithal so tagged this one following Sherman and the Gemini 13ers. By this time the skies had cleared and for that I was most grateful.
Bagged Sherman. Went over and got North and South Gemini. Back over Sherman and across to Sheridan.
Nice little peak climb after climbing Mt. Sherman
4/20/14: 3rd time up, this time a spring climb from Iowa Gulch in combination with Mt Sherman. Road still closed at winter closure and route mostly snow until just below Sherman-Sheridan saddle.
10/24/20: 4th time up, Iowa Gulch combo with Sherman. Seasonal grid completion.
Windy day, started at 4 mile creek TH, continue onto Peerless and Horseshoe. Nobody else on this hike, only a couple of people on Sherman.
Did Sheridan to Peerless to Horseshoe with Heather and Buster.
East Slopes with McCannster and Davebobk47, most of the gathering group headed up Sherman, as we had all been up it before we thought this would make a nice alternative.
Was able to drive almost to the summer TH in winter! Pretty short hike, maybe around 4 hours ctc, mellow pace. With davebobk47 and chicagotransplant.
Very nice hike with great weather.
I hiked 7 13ers and one fourteener. A great all day trip. Started at Leavick mining site. Hihed Horseshoe Mountain, Finnback Knob, Horseshoe Mountain again, Peerless Mountain, Mt. Sheridan, Mt. Sherman, Gemini Peak, Dyer Mountain and White Ridge. Great day.
Parked at gate with a 10:20 am start. Sunny day, bit windy (when isn't it?). Breaks to explore ruins with a Sherman summit before noon. Visited by a mountain goat during our nice break, and then summited Sheridan by 1:40. Explored more mine ruins, back to car by 4 pm.
