Mt. Dickerman - 5723'
Miles RT: Elevation Gain: Route/Trail:
8 4000' trail
Map: GT - #111 Sloan Peak
Season: spring
I had wanted to see how far up the Perry Creek Road I could get but found that it was snow blocked right at the Mountain Loop Hwy.  My backup plan was to go a little further up the highway to Mt. Dickerman. 
I followed the summer trail to where it first emerges from the trees into a gully (pic 2).  The trail cuts left and then swings around on the ridge.  The snow route I followed went right (north), up slope to a fairly steep gully and then out onto the open slopes below the west ridge.  From there, I aimed for a clump of trees on the skyline and followed the ridge east to the top.  Descent was the reverse of the ascent.
