The weather looked so good today, as compared to the weekend, I decided to swap my day off from tomorrow to today. It was a good move. The weather was great on the mountain today. I carried snowshoes, but never used them. My gaiters and microspikes were useful in spots, but not critical. The only real accumulation of snow was in the bowl beneath the Sherman/Sheridan saddle (pics 1 and 2). I simply stayed to the right of the snow and made my way up to the dark rock on the ridge (extreme right of #1). The ridgeline itself was pretty clear (#3).
