Route Climbed: Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

Ooooooooooooooooooh the scree! This is indeed scree territory so watch out for twisting ankles. RMdaytripsgrl is correct when she said that Sherman "is completely destroyed by old mining activity." My friend couldn't help himself so he took a dump in one of the mining shacks. Grosss!!

Best thing to see on the summit ridge is Mount Sheridan. At the time of our 4th of July climb, Sheridan has a "$" sign on its slope and I snapped a pic :) I really looked like a dollar sign!

From Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

Snowshoes definitely are indicated in April. Snow deep and getting soft. Road was plowed to 1 mile below Leavick. Chris and I climbed Sherman, Gemini, and Dyer this day. Exhausting!

Route Climbed: Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

The headwall was still in so I went strait up it. Had a fun glissade on the way down. I met an 83 year old man on the summit who was still out bagging peaks… awesome! Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.

Route: Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

I would rate this one as the easiest (that I've done). Still it was beautiful. Saw lots of cute marmots.

Not much to say about this one. You could land a plane on this summit.

Quite an easy 14er. Perfect for a first timer too. I only met a few people. Went and checked out the ruins of the Climax mine and Hilltop mine. Good weather, very dry. A good day.

Not a long hike but cold weekend with high winds on the ridge. You could alwost lean 45 degrees into the wind without falling. Beautiful dark blue skies that day. 14er #10

This mountain is completely destroyed by old mining activity. If you're going for all of them, you just gotta muscle through this one. The only fun part is the summit ridge - had a nice cornice to deal with which made an otherwise boring 14er a fun one. From the top, you can see there's a nice drainage on the east side of the valley that is really fun to go down in the snow vs. the way up. You can get some glissading in and you skip all the tailings piles on the west side that you hated climbing up and around.. Follow it and it comes out right back on the 4wd road just below the final gate on the road. Just don't go in it when avalanche conditions are bad...death trap if something triggered.
