|Peak:||Mt. Sherman (14er)|
|Route:||Southwest Ridge from Fourmile Creek|
|Date of Information:||11/10/2013|
The road up to the gate was mostly clear, and any 4wd vehicle should be able to drive up to it. There is one (seriously only one) ice sheet at the gate that you need traction for, but after that there is intermittent snow on the trail. We barely post-holed thanks to other hikers from previous days, and after the ice sheet we did not take our microspikes out again. Maybe 6 inches of snow at the most in some areas. Windy as hell at the top and on the ridge line down to the saddle between Sheridan and Sherman. We also climbed Gemini Peak, which was snow-free.
