Sherman Peak has an exposed summit / activation zone. I hiked to the summit from Trail 72 along the western slope. Be prepared to hike through large boulder fields; trekking poles helped greatly. Plan to use a mast if using a wire antenna. I ended up using a trekking pole and the tallest dead tree which put my EFHW at around 6' off the ground.

Look for a small rock area in the middle of the summit with summit register as well as a geocache in a grey plastic ammo can. Amazing views in 360 degrees make this a memorable climb. Water available at the spring crossing about two miles from the TH.
