Piece of cake for number 8. Up and down in shade over 2 hours with Shane and Peter. Old coal mines added a little flavor to this enjoyable hike. Great view of Democrat and and classic cirque. Everybody should do Sherman!

Started from the mine at the very bottom to make sure I did 3,000, decided that's my standard.

Route Climbed: Fourmile Creek via scree slope Date Climbed: July 3, 2005  Sucess!

Started at 7am, made the mistake of groggily following the first group up and ended up on a steep scree slope instead of the saddle. Probably saved a little time. We actually had the summit to ourselves for a few minutes! I think we saw 'myrone' at the top.

Route Climbed: From the mine, don't know what this is called?? Date Climbed: Sunday July 3, 2005  Sucess!

Got a late start, started up at 8:02AM. Reached the summit via scree-filled gully,(I didn't know any better, not bad) yet the fastest way to the top, summited at 9:20AM. Stayed about 18 mins then back down with lots of people coming up, glissaded going down, back to the car at 10:40AM, my 13th 14'er, sweet!!

Climbed with my buddy JFA. We encountered high winds from the saddle to the summit, but overall this was a straightforward and relatively easy hike.

Warm day for Colorado, and a good bit of traffic on the trail.

This mountain is FULL of trails- heading in every which direction.... my suggestion? Do as we did, ignore them, and create your own:-) Yeah, we decided to go straight vertically up the mountain on the scree... now THAT is the way to climb what is otherwise considered to be an "easy" 14er!:-) Oh, and can we say "mines?!" They are everywhere! Though unsafe, they are a blast to approach from a distance and check out! Be adventurous here!

Hey yo! I thought u'd contribute to more erosion if u make your own trail up the peak.

In the winter you have to park prior to reaching the Leavick Townsite so be prepared for the extra mileage you can (usually) easily avoid avalanche conditions

Route Climbed: Leavick Date Climbed: January 2004  Sucess!

You know you had a nice winter day of climbing when there are people on the summit with their shirts off posing for the photographer! I hear winds on this summit can be insane, glad we were so fortunate with such incredible weather!

Route Climbed: Fourmile Creek and Iowa Gulch routes Date Climbed: July 23, 1983  Sucess!

In 1983 and again in 1988 I climbed from Leavick to the south ridge, by the "standard route". On Sept. 27, 1992 I started from high in Iowa Gulch, climbing Dyer Mtn by the SE Slopes route and continued ESE along the narrow ridge to Gemini (Class II). The walk south from Gemini to Sherman's summit is an easy stroll on a high plateau, with the summit in view the entire way. From the summit I continued south to the Sherman/Sheridan saddle, and then returned to the west from there along a lightly used trail along the northern side of this drainage (not on the maps) and some scree, where the trail had disappeared over the years. This is a nice tour that avoids most of the crowds and allows more summits to be climbed as well.
