Arrived at Leavick Mine at 3am at started at 8ish. Did Sheridan and Sherman. Fun glissade down to the cars
dinky hike, fun glissade.
Hiked the East Ridge from the Thompson Park Trailhead. This was a surprisingly beautiful hike. Lots of wind on the way up. Not much wind at the summit.
Met a nice guy, Tony, on the road and we climbed togather. It was about 3 1/2 hours car to car and we took time to smell the flowers. Sherman could be the easiest 14'er in the US.
A repeat as part of the 14ers.com spring outing. Continued on to White Ridge.
A long-ish afternoon jaunt, since the road was impassable above 11,000'. Cramponing directly up Sherman's face saved time over going to the saddle.
Nice spring ski trip to the top.
First solo 14er and first 14er climb with an ice axe and on snow. Really fun day and was completely alone on a popular mountain.
Cold day, but great climb. Brought the pooches with me.

Part of a 12 fourteeners in 6 days spree.
Hiked with Mt. Sheridan and Dyer Mtn.
My friend Matt and I climbed this route from the paved road turnoff to get 3000 feet of elevation gain. Fun, easy straigt forward route. The weather was particularly nasty for most of the day. The cold front that passed through dropped some snow and a lot of wind. The weather broke up a bit during the summit rest. We only saw two other people on the mountain so that was nice. Great day.
This was my first 14er climb, and I climbed it again several other times. I even took several of my family who were flatlanders from Indiana almost to the summit before they turned around.
Parked at the gate, and was glad I did, since I don't much care for walking on roads. It snowed down to around 11,500 the night before, maybe 3-4 inches up high; bare in some places, drifted knee deep in others. Reached the summit quickly, and decided to tag Gemini while I was there. I didn't have much interest in Sheridan on the way down, though. Weather was forecast to be nasty, but it was clear and beautiful, though windy.
Hiked this from the Leavick site. Cold and snowy day, reached the summit 3.5 hours after starting
Couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. Sunny & warm. A really extreme gust of winds just before the narrow ridge. Had to really hold on to your hats. Summit was calm, clear, and warm. Excellent climb. I truly live in God's country!
My 10yo son and I attemted this 2 years ago when he was 8. He got sick at the saddle (from what he ate) so we descended. It was important for us to finish what we started, and we did... even though it was 2 years later. It was a windy day. We didn't stay on the summit long due to threatening weather.
Fun hike but this mountain is completely tore up. There are about a half dozen trails that lead up and down and there is significant mining damage. Still a fun morning!
