Sherman Saturday 1/22?

Postby jagiammaria » Sat Jan 15, 2011 9:02 pm

Would anyone be up for a trip up Sherman this next Saturday? As of now it's just me and I'm not sure if I'd be comfortable solo.

Sent you a PM, I'm most likely in as well.

I would like to go as well, weather/conditions permitting. :D PM sent

Definitely looking at doing the Southwest Ridge from Fourmile Creek. I want to try to avoid as much avy terrain as possible. Judging by the picture and description of those who did it last Thursday it doesn't look like there is too much snow, but who knows what this next storm might add.

Very doubtful that I could "escape," but I am very interested to know how far/if you can make it all the way to the gate on 4 Mile road?

Last Thursday, they had it plowed about a mile below the Leavick site, as Bill Middlebrook states on the Snow Route of Sherman, so we hiked in about 1.5 or 2 miles to the gate. Still, overall this was a "short" winter 14er ;)

I'll be leaving from Silverthorne, but would be willing to work something out if anybody else is leaving from there. I'm thinking about starting about 7, any thoughts?

I'm still tentatively in, pending a doctor's appointment Thursday for a foot issue. If I get the all-clear, I'll be heading up Saturday morning from Denver. Carpool more than welcome!

I'm definitely interested in coming! But with all the new snow I am hesitant as to how safe the climb will be - CAIC says the area has high avalanche danger right now (http://avalanche.state.co.us/index.php). Thoughts?
