Saddle and Back

Weather forecast was calling for 50+ mph winds kicking up after mid-morning and I just hadn't acclimatized myself well enough after one day at altitude. I changed my target to the saddle and got some great pictures then headed down to Fourmile Creek as the clouds started to build. I'll be back, Sherman!

from Fourmile Creek  Sucess!

Nice hike/climb in a fresh snow, my dog loved it, but was getting burried.

Easy and fun  Sucess!

A fun climb - there was an abnormally large snowfall that year, with a lot remaining even in August, so we got a nice glissade for part of the way down.

First 14 - Age 6  Sucess!

Four notable memories from this 1985 climb:

1. We had cheese on the top
2. It was very windy and my mom thought I was going to get blown off the top
3. I insisted on carrying this rock I found at the mine at the trailhead and I carried it all the way up!
4. I was a little altitude sick on the top.

Sherman winter ascent  Sucess!

Overnighted it in the bivy sack with Nick aka Dude That Must Hurt and the other Nick. Woke up to a -12 degree morning and a nice breakfast before heading up. Was nice to be at 14K for the first time since September and was very nice to get a 2nd winter ascent of a 14er.

Four Mile  Sucess!

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

Simple Hike  Sucess!

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.

Camping at the Summit  Sucess!

Instead of a longer day on LaPlata we opted for a shorter amount of vertical on Sherman from the east. Carrying all the overnight gear, we biveyed on the summit and watched 4th of July fireworks around Fairplay. I was able to get some nice astrophotography in between 00:01 and 02:00........ came down in the wind the next day.

Perfect Day!  Sucess!

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.
