First time  Sucess!

This was my first time climbing Sherman. Most times have been from the Leavick trailhead. One time however we started from the Leadville side and went over Dyer and then Gemini before summiting Sherman.

Foggy day

Summitted in Aug '07 during heavy fog and very heavy sustained winds. Very easy route despite the near zero visibility.

Sherman  Sucess!

Easy hike. Only took an hour and a half to summit, and about 45 minutes to get back down. Only saw 2 other people, a father and his 8 year old daughter. Want to take some beginners on a 14er, this is the one since it is easy and not that crowded.

Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

The weather this day had many, many moods: early morning rain, then sun, then more clouds boiled over the mountain and ridges and brought a driving rain/sleet/snow that pelted us on our ascent. However, once we reached the saddle between Sheridan & Sherman, the clouds were blowing off and the sun shined brightly. It was still cold at the summit, but cozy enough in the wind breaks for lunch. Amazing winds experienced for the entire ridgeline.

From Iowa Gulch  Sucess!

Did we steal this one? Felt like it. Just slipped through a window in the weather to get up it. Ran into two huge groups which included a 7 year old kid and a corgi dog.

1st Solo  Sucess!

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 day  Sucess!

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