Summited Sherman today, but the wind while descending the SW ridge was some of the most intense I've experienced on a 14er. Battled the whole way down the ridge trying to not just get blown completely off. I was glad to have my poles with me to help dig in to the scree a bit when the wind started to knock me over. It felt consistently well over 50mph with frequent higher gusts.
Route was mostly rock with some packed blown snow portions. I decided to park at 11.3k on Fourmile road, but it was drivable to basically 12k which is where most other cars were parked.
