Sherman - South Slope Route ADDED

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sun Feb 17, 2008 7:07 pm

I finally dug through photos and notes from several winter ascents (and ski descents) over the past few years to get this route on the site. It's a relatively easy route that can avoid some of the difficulties of climbing the standard SW Ridge route in winter. If you're looking to ski Sherman, this route may provide the most continuous snow from the summit back down to the road in Fourmile Creek. NOTE: As of yesterday, the snow above 13,300' wasn't worth a ski.

Good, those new BDs could use some big scratches!
