 Sherman via Iowa Gulch (route 2)   

My 13-year-old son and I hiked up from the Iowa Gulch side on Thursday and nearly had the mountain to ourselves, only passing a family on our way up and then meeting with a couple on the summit.
We started late and so didn‘t get to the top until after 11. The weather turned out to be fine, though cloudy throughout the morning and I worried some about whether the threat of storms would cause us to turn back early.
The route description was absolutely accurate and our only problem was on the way down when my son‘s bad knee was bothering him and I lost my watch.
All in all, a great day.
