After Sheridan. This is a 'funny' summit. Windy day.

Looking down from Horseshoe Mountain's summit, Peerless Mountain looked like a short brown bump. That's one way to look at it. Another way is that it is a mighty 13-er with its own page in Summitpost! So we bagged it on the way down, an easy add from the path back from Horseshoe.

Made the short scramble up Peerless as an add-on to hiking up Horseshoe Mountain. Well worth it if you're in the vicinity.

Some 14ers.com members and I decided to climb Horseshoe Mountain. I didn't sleep at all the prior night and was not feeling well, so early in the morning I decided to take an alternate route. I walked up the mining track to near Mount Sheridan before cutting across to the Sheridan/Peerless Saddle. I then went over the summit of Peerless Mountain and to the summit of Horseshoe Mountain.
When I reached the summit of Horseshoe Mountain, there was one other person waiting on top. The others were still climbing the Boudoir Couloir. After meeting the rest of the climbers, I spent a while on time before gissading down the couloir. It was a fast ride down.
The rest of the descent went well, but I didn't bring snowshoes so there was quite a bit of post-holing.

Skiied Boudoir Col. Parked along road between Sherman parking area and Leavick Mine. Ascended to saddle between Peerless and HS. Quickly went up Peerless, then up to HS. Met two guys, both named Alex, and skied the col with them. It had avalanched maybe the day prior or the day prior to that. Long slide path and wide debris field. Appears to have swept about 5 inches of soft wet snow with it. About 10 minutes after we skied it, we were boot packing it by the upper lake and another big slide happened from a high snowfield north of the major cliff bands. It sounded like a giant gust of wind.

Liba Kopeckova - Oct 20, 2013 9:19 pm Date Climbed: Oct 20, 2013Windy day
Started with Sheridan, traversed onto Peerless, and continued onto Horseshoe.
Very windy, only a couple of people on 14er Sherman, otherwise completely alone on this hike.

Did Sheridan to Peerless to Horseshoe with Heather and Buster.
telemarkdude - May 24, 2013 10:37 pm Date Climbed: May 24, 2013Nice Spring Hike
Excellent day. A bit of wind on the ridge, but that's almost always been the case here.
milan - Oct 24, 2012 5:21 pm Date Climbed: May 14, 2012Mosquito Delight
I hiked 7 13ers and one fourteener. A great all day trip. Started at Leavick mining site. Hihed Horseshoe Mountain, Finnback Knob, Horseshoe Mountain again, Peerless Mountain, Mt. Sheridan, Mt. Sherman, Gemini Peak, Dyer Mountain and White Ridge. Great day.

Very last minute decision. I heard about the Lyrid meteor shower and thought I might car camp, watch the show, and get a peak or two in. Didn't see a single meteor! But did summit Peerless, Sheridan, Sherman, and White Ridge.

Nice bump on the ridge between Horseshoe and Sheridan. Did it with voxnihili but we had to go back down after Peerless due to incoming storm.
voxnihili - Aug 17, 2011 2:12 am Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2011Fun little bump
Fun little diversion on the Horseshoe - Sheridan traverse.
Gareth - Aug 24, 2010 11:53 am Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010Between Sheridan and Horseshoe
