Ken working a harder problem at Sherman Acres

Description 

This awesome spot seems all but forgotten these days. In the winter this area gets buried in snow, but in the spring and fall it is a perfect place to get away from the crowds at the Peabodies. There are many blocs here to explore, as well as some standout problems, but the place takes some exploration before you figure out where everything is.


Getting There 

Drive up the Buttermilk road past the Peabodies all the way past Grouse Mountain. There is a tricky creek crossing. Shortly after this creek crossing, take a small road on the left that goes downhill towards Grouse Mountain. The road gets steep at the end, dropping down a hill to the boulders. 4WD strongly recommended.

Mike Brady reaches the lip of 'Sketch Pad'

Sketchpad V0+ 4+ PG13  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Sherman Acres
An amazing line that requires careful technique from start to finish. Climb up the 20+' tall slab on small edges. The beginning is cruxy, then you get a reprieve on some bigger edges before committing to the topout. The first commercial crashpad, the Kinnaloa Sketchpad, was developed for this problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
