We saw a lot of people coming up from the east side but we were the only souls going up/down the west side (Iowa Gultch).
Cold, high winds, and LOTS of snow!! Had the whole area to myself. Made a trip over to the Gemini Peaks.
Scouts did well.
From Iowa Gulch. Wind was terrible but was nice on the summit. Nice hike, to many people on the summit but thats typical for a colorado 14teener.
Clear, warm December with rkymtn. Windy at the summit, but a pleasant day.
Amber's first 14er.
Great 14er... pretty setting, easy access, unique terrain. Good stuff
quick little hike with my 10 year old and 8 year old sons, it was the first hike up a 14er for the younger son after driving up Evans and Pikes Peak
If weather is ok good for afternoon walk
Did this with a number of SPers on a chilly and very windy day. Quick 14er with the trail open all the way to the summer gate and our choice to head straight up the side of the mountain.
Winter ascent 1-19-2013.
Car camped right below the gate and then hit the trail at 330am with about 10 friends. The trail can be misleading in the dark - there's mining roads all over the place. Topped-out right as the sun was rising. It was freezing cold and windy at the summit but a great experience.
crawled to top. coldest I've ever been.
1st 14er with good friends
Solo, camped at trailhead in the explorer.
An unseasonably warm, but windy, ascent with my wife. We enjoyed looking at the old mines from a safe distance on our way down.
This made 14er ascent #31 and first time up Sherman. Summited both Gemini twins as well but got weathered out on the approach to Dyer Mountain.
Skied up using tele gear on very good snow coverage. Was very windy and hard to stand without feeling like you're going to get blown over; made the descent quite interesting.
Easy and enjoyable.
