Did the Sherman Grand Slam starting at 4am. Summitted Sherman, Gemini Pk, Dyer, Sheridan, Peerless, and finally Horseshoe all in a day's work.

Summer conditions abound in all peaks, starting early helps you avoid the Sherman crowd. Overall took us 10 hours to complete with long breaks at the summits.

The way back from Horseshoe needs some extra care as you can accidentally take one switchback too many and end up going down the wrong road. Make sure to stick to the road going eastwards (as provided in the route description on this site).
