Rush, Astrobassman and I made good time up this rock pile with heavy packs as part of our Denali 09 training. It is not a 'pretty' mountain with all the mining destruction. A great way to kick off the first full day of Spring.
Climbed Via Four Mile Creek Trail.
Started friday 3-13-09 7pm on trail 1.5 miles from Leavick Mine we THINK @ 11,000' even. we feel it was close enough for the 3000' gain, Bivyed @ 11,800' started @ 9:30am on trail & hit summit @ 12:05pm on the 14'th. Great "winter" ascent for 2009 and good start to the 14'r season for me for 09
Nice climb - a bit windy. Slept just off the summitt to help acclimate for our trip to Pequeno Alpamayo, Huayana Potosi, and Illimani in Bolivia 2 weeks later.
8/8/04 - Climbed standard route from the east. Nice hike with lots of cool old mining buildings and plenty of marmots.
10/2/05 - Climbed unintentionally after summitting Dyer & Gemini from Iowa Gulch. Only peak I ever climbed by accident :)
1/18/09 - Winter ascent from Iowa Gulch winter closure (10,900 ft). Snowshoe slog up the gulch then mostly dry slopes above 11,900 ft. Climbed Sheridan afterwards.
1/29/17 - Bonus peak after climbing Dyer from Iowa Gulch winter closure.
Wife, dog and I. Looped from Dyer-Gemini-Sherman-Sheridan.
Fun trail to run back down on!
Mom and Jessie came out with Marni and we all made the summit. Bomber weather all day.
Hiked with Shannon who was doing her first 14er. Lots of crowds on Saturday, but great views from the summit.
Hiked from fourmile creek with my sons. This was their 1st 14er.
Although we caught an August snowstorm, this was a very easy hike to a broad summit. Starting above tree line and overcast, there was not much to look at.
Started from the Iowa Gulch TH, up Sheridan, Sherman, Gemini Pt, and Dyer Peak. 3:10 car to car, a nice morning jaunt on the ridgeline, all class 2 and below.
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.
