I'm headed out in early May and looking for the latest on Willie's Couloir? As of 2009 I'm seeing there is no longer a walk-up, is this still the case. Seems more recently others have been able to find a non technical way to Sherwood ledge. Any info would be great. Thanks. M. Shannon

I've hiked up Willy's Couloir recently, and indeed, it is a dead end just past the base of Dogma. As to a non-technical way to Sherwood Ledge, I don't know, but it's worth a try, perhaps outside the Couloir, to the south. John Hegyes

I'd check in with Branch Whitney's Hiking Las Vegas group. If anyone has found a non-technical way up to Sherwood, it will be Branch. Last I heard, he was still looking but was unable to find a way up without a rope, but that was a couple of years ago.

Theoretically, you could rappel in from the summit via Dogma, but thats quite a bit of work and finding the Dogma rap anchors from the summit could be a challenge.

I know Richard Natale has found a non-technical route up to Sherwood Forest. He says it is mostly class 3 with some exposure. Kevin Humes
