the standard route appears to be at high risk for avalanches. The ridge is not safe to pass. You can scale the south east face of Sherman but it's quite steep, has some snow on it and is covered in loose rock. Another couple made it too the peak on the snow route, snow shoes were mandatory for them and highly suggested for the standard route. The road in is shut down approximately 3 miles below the gate and makes for a heck of a walk. The first mile or so is in 8" of powder. It is doable but is a good 14 mile jaunt. Expect it to take all day!

Made the summit on Sherman today by the snow route. As stated in the condition report, expect a long day. I would take snow shoes to the summit. Dont be fooled into caching them, you will encounter more powder.
