The Sherpa Glacier is the left-most of Stuart's 3 north-side glaciers. It is also the easiest to climb and descend. The glacier and long curving snow gully above form a classic ski route from Stuart's summit ridge, and offer the peak's best early-season descent. From atop the snow, simple class 3 scrambling leads along the ridge to the summit.
Just left of the Ice Cliff Arete and left of the Ice cliff glacier, on the NE flank of Mt. Stuart. - best approached via Mountaineers Creek Trailhead.
