|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||8656 ft / 2638 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA little less than a mile up 107 I broke off road and headed NE toward open (obvious SW facing) (cheat) grassy slope between PT. 7980 and PK8100. Summited PK8100 and then traversed northward along east side of PT7980 and descended down its north slope to Camel Pass. From there worked up south ridge and south drainage trending NE toward notable sub-peak SE of Sherman. Easy scramble up to this rocky point before heading over to the Sherman Pk. summit. Most of the route was grass over rock with a fair amount of deadfall to navigate but with very little brush to fight with. Easy class 2 type cross-country travel.
