Ken working a harder problem at Sherman Acres
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.
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.
