I summited with my 50 year old dad who has never climbed making it one of the most memorable days of my life.
Ski descent with full alpine gear resulting in the largest blisters I've ever had or want to have...thank God for AT gear! Really fun skiing through the old mine ruins at the bottom.
I have climbed Sherman twice, once in summer and once in winter. As a summer climb it is quite easy, however in winter it can be much longer and harder!
Nice conditioning hike.
Because we intended to bag four 14ers on the same day, my friend Duane and I decided on the shortest route with the least elevation gain for Mt. Sherman. It was the first of the day, the other three being Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross. Duane succeeded with all four, but I was completely wasted by three nights of little or no sleep in the previous week, so I was lucky to return to the vehicle after summitting Democrat for only my second of the day. On Sherman we hiked to the southwest ridge at the Sherman-Sheridan Saddle and ascended the ridge to the summit.
