First 14er of 2008! Great day hiking Sherman with my great friend Nancy. Met up with a fellow southerner (Jeb) on the way to the summit and did a couple glissades down the snow slopes of Sherman.
Came up from Leadville side. My first CO 14er! easy traverse on snow into the pass between sheridan and sherman than a nice sprint up to the summit.
Summit!! Very fun and quite easy compared to the other ones. Highly recomended. Summited on perfect weather and a beautiful view!
My future wife and I car camped at the road end and made the easy climb the following day. Have returned a couple of times since... once with my daughter when in high school. Neat climb - easy 14'er. Good memories.
Climbed this again with two buddies under some brutally cold temps (not sure if it ever got above zero). Clear skies and a long death march back to the truck. Kind of a rewarding day!
This was my 5th summit of Sherman.
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.
I had pleasant afternoon hike up Sherman. Nice view, except for that awful mine.
beautiful place anyway.
Summitted in Aug '07 during heavy fog and very heavy sustained winds. Very easy route despite the near zero visibility.
Time 2. Is it ever not windy on the ridge?!
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.
Great hike from Iowa Gulch. Hiked Mount Sheridan and Sherman.
Mount Sherman: 4,278 m (14,036 ft).
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.
I climbed with my sister and father. We camped the night before and it was windy all around. Good easy climb, went very quickly.
Thought it was a fun hike, really liked the ridge to the summit. Thought the area was beautiful and ineresting.
Liked the fun and easy hike up the ridge to the Summit.
Loved all the dilapidated buildings on this hike!
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.
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!
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.
