Ascent Trip Report

Climbing Sheridan from it's saddle with Sherman is fairly straightforward. There are obvious tracks, but it's still about the same terrain on them as off. One weird thing- there is a cairn and a wind shelter on opposite sides of the summit, and each looks taller when standing at the other.
