|Date of Info:||01/01/2013|
Road conditions for the Fourmile Creek TH are the same as was posted by climbingbiz on 12/29.
We parked just above the Leavick Mine site, on the left in the big pull out.
Snowshoes were left at the truck. Spikes were not needed, but there is some ice on the road farther up, but can be avoided by going on the right side of it, in the snow.
Ascended S slopes, descended S slopes. Cold frickn day.
1.) S slopes route, taken on our descent. Note: the gully we came down is low angle and we thought it to be safe and efficient by plunge stepping down.
2.) Closeup of Sheridan/Sherman saddle, where the SW ridge route typically is gained in summer.
3.) Sheridan's NE ridge and connecting saddle with Sherman
4.) Looking down from near the summit, looking at Fourmile Cr rd/valley
