1st 14er!!! IA Gulch route  Sucess!

My first 14er. Summited in 2 hrs and 40 minutes. Not too bad, considering that I had just arrived from KS the previous evening. What a rush. 53 more to go!

1st Solo  Sucess!

This was my first and only solo 14'er and a winter ascent as well. From four mile creek TH, had the mountain all to myself, with great weather and just some wind on the summit.

Iowa Gulch climb  Sucess!

Easy climb crossing Iowa Gulch for a west side approach. Fun summit ridge with a little exposure introduction. Left trailhead at 7:05am, on top 9:40am. My member photo was actually a self portrait from summit of Sherman. I had ten seconds to run and assume a position of relaxation among the summit cairn rocks.

Black runoff  Sucess!

I scaled a black dirt runoff from the snow melt straight up its' south face. Surprisingly firm! No loose talus. Actually kinda fun! Second time up here on my way over to Dyer.

Perfect weather  Sucess!

Great hike and a wonderful day except that I lost my camera. Saw an elk herd on the drive in. (Four Mile Creek TH)

Perfect day  Sucess!

Sunny, calm, not quite hot but getting there. Glissades were soggy but enjoyable and not to be missed.

Mt. Sherman ("BigEasy")  Sucess!

Really easy climb. Perfect weather, postholed a little on top but nothing to difficult. There was two really nice glissades on the way back down. Can't wait till next winter to take the board up, and maybe hit up some of the 13ers in the area to make a horseshoe type route.

Better than Advertised  Sucess!

Great day! Climbed from the Fourmile Creek side. Relatively easy going as the snow stayed firm through noon. The final ridge was enjoyable and was in good condition - good snow with a few spots of hard snow/ice. The glissade down was great too!

Just hiked it  Sucess!

Not the most exciting mountain, but I did enjoy the glissades. Started at the Leavick Mine so I could actually do a little work for the summit.

via - fourmile creek  Sucess!

Nice easy hike up, winds were blowing hard like normal on the saddle. We didn't even have to break out the snowshoes or crampons the whole day. Perfect day with great views from the top. We found a sweet spot for a nice little glissade on the way down, and then we decided to hike up and do it again. It was nice!

Interesting Hike  Sucess!

The route to the saddle was an easy snow climb. However the ridge to the summit significantly more interesting with high wind, cornices, and unconsolidated powder on top of hard snow. It made for a fun day!

Easy 14er  Sucess!

Easy, easy hike. Decent views from the top, but Sherman certainly is one of the ugliest 14ers I've encountered.

GOT SHOWSHOES?

Attempted my first winter 14er ascent. Started from the winter TH at the ARSCO mine. I was unsuccessful but I enjoyed the experience. Check out my Trip Report 8000 Post Holes to Nowhere.

wiiiiiindy  Sucess!

god awfully windy day, perfectly clear through out the entire day though. I lost my sunglasses on this mountain. Anybody finds a pair it's probably mine.

From Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

Weather looked so so in the morning, but the sun came out as I reached the summit. Soon the clouds disappeared and I went and did Sheridan as well. On my way down, I coud not resist photographing some gorgeous wildflowers that were abundant by the creek. My slideshow is here: Mount Sherman and Sheridan from Fourmile Creek

A brief detour on the way to Denver  Sucess!

We were heading from Salt Lake to Denver to a wedding and decided to stop off near Leadville for a snowy climb before heading into the big city. Whiteout conditions on the top, but nice weather on the way down.

Winter climbs  Sucess!

January 19 2013

Kessler, me and some Summitpost friends climbed Mt. Sherman, Colorado 14er. It is probable that several other 10 year olds have climbed the mountain, but I'm guessing that few of them have done so in January. We headed up Friday night and spent the night at 12,000 feet. It was hard to sleep because the winds were strong. The next morning we climbed the peak and everyone summitted. It was a beautiful sunny day, but the winds were really strong and it was cold. The minimum wild chill factor was -33F to -54F.

December 23 2006

Winter ascent with four others. After driving alone to 11,000 feet on the 22nd, I walked to 11,560 feet and camped. The night was -7F. At 12,100 feet, I waited for and met three others whom planned to climb Sherman and Sheridan with me. Another member caught up later. The five of us climbed Sherman and three of us climbed Sheridan. It was a great trip in good weather.
