|Peak:||Mt. Sherman (14er)|
|Route:||Southwest Ridge from Fourmile Creek|

My climbing partner and I had tried to find updated peak info on here before going but didn't see anything and thought we'd chance it, and wanted to let everyone know the conditions as recently as possible in hopes others are looking to get one more summit in before winter.
Some snow in places, sometimes up to our knees but we managed just fine with hiking boots and trekking poles - didn't even need microspikes. The biggest issue when we went was the wind, especially on the ridge. It definitely got worse as the day went on - we left the trailhead (the road, by the way, is completely clear) around 0800 and returned around 1400.
Not really any ice and not really anything truly treacherous. Unless it's dumped up there since we last went, I'd highly encourage giving it a try!
