Sherman -> Gemini -> White Ridge. Not skiable.

-Parked about 0.4 mi below Leavick (a hefty 4wd may be able to break through the drifted section).
-Followed standard Fourmile approach up to about Hilltop Mine (no snowshoes or traction used).
- Contoured right to White Ridge/Sherman saddle before gaining Sherman from the NE (avoided winds on summit ridge; a couple wind-loaded slopes but plenty of lines through - ice axe used to chop steps/test snow).
-Descended NW to Gemini (no traction/snowshoes).
-Contoured around Sherman and gained White Ridge (no snowshoes/traction needed).
-Descended SE via rock band by Leavick site (still very low avy danger, snow to road was too powdery for snowshoes. No traction used).
