Pretty Easy Day  Sucess!

I was planning on doing this hike on my last day in Colorado as I thought I could complete it and still make my afternoon flight. However, after topping off Quandary in the morning, I figured I would see if I could get up and down Sherman later in the afternoon. I parked at the trailhead, got out and immediately saw two large bolts of lightening. So, I opted for the next morning. On a good note, the South Park Brewery in Fairplay is a good place for a beer. Also, there is plenty of parking/camping on the way to the trailhead. I did see a moose on the drive back in.

Iowa Gulch  Sucess!

Drove the road up to the Iowa Gulch "trailhead." Snow in the basin was already soft by 9 am. Post-holed a lot and then had to put on spikes to traverse a few steeper snow slopes that were still frozen. Once in the gully the snow subsided and the trip to the summit was uneventful.

started from gated end of County Road 18. Afternoon showers - we had a later start and were set on edge by echoing thunder. With Wasatch Mountain Club group ...

Started from the Fourmile trailhead at five am. Up to the peak by 6:30. Back down by 7:45. There was a fun little glissade down the saddle south of Sherman. 14er #17.

Sherman  Sucess!

The 9-10 miles of road up to the gate is terrible. Not 4*4, just insanely bumpy. Enjoy. Straight forward climb, and is short and sweet. Bit of snow and cornice section left at saddle. We went up it in AM, but traversed around to avoid in PM. Lots of talus, but it is not steep enough to be a pain in those sections. Nice little ridge line up to summit. Enjoyed the day, even with the strong winds.
14er #10

Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

Hiked up Sherman with some co-workers. It was chilly in the morning and windy on the summit, but sunny and beautiful. The leaves were just starting to turn up there. We stopped at South Park Brewing for beers afterward.

Pup in Pack  Sucess!

3 hours round-trip with Aya. Tyler ride in the pack except for the easy 1/4 mile at the start. Seeing the misery on the faces of the mountain bikers on the dirt road hurt more hike.

Mt Sherman Summit  Sucess!

It's tricky finding the unmarked trail head and this added to my time. This hike is pleasant and despite being just over an illness I decided to take it on given it's believed to be one of the easiest 14ers but there is no easy fourteener in reality. Around 11:15 the clouds gathered and thunder was taking place but I decided to go on since the forecast didn't call for lightning and it was ice raining. The view from the saddle and the summit are really worth the effort. I did snap couple of photos and headed down without a break. The air was buzzing and static was all over and it was menacing to say the least.

Summit ski  Sucess!

Summit ski of the south slopes with Rachael and Ben, Ben's first 14ers ski. 4th time up Sherman for me.

#42 South slope direkt  Sucess!

One of the quickest 14ers hands down. Took 45 minutes to the top and 25 minutes coming down. Surprisingly had some of the best views too. Very prominent above the towns that flank it on either side.

Cold and Cloudy  Sucess!

Hiked with Ruvicha and two other friends. A good trail made for a relatively fast hike, though we encountered a dusting of snow from the previous night on top, and the summit was clouded in, so not much to see until we dropped back down on the return. My first Colorado 14-er. Lots of old mines dotting the sides of the trail.

Cold but worth the climb  Sucess!

Started up from Four Mile on the east side in sunshine, arrived at the snow-dusted summit in a cloud that limited visibility to only a dozen yards or so. Once down and out of the cloud, a cold wind picked up but the views westward to the Sawatch Range were excellent. We chose the eastern side because the threat of thunderstorms made it advisable to use the shorter route than that which comes up from Iowa Gulch on the west -- but at least from the pass between Sherman and Sheridan, the trails looked to be about equal in length.
