We climbed the South Sour via the Cold Springs Campground. The road to the trailhead is gravel and recently graded (any car will make it through). The climb up trail 183 is fairly clearly marked and winds slowly to the Lunch Counter. The approach (at a leisurely pace) takes 4-5 hours. The wind picked up in the afternoon to a steady 30mph and lasted through the night. We left for the summit at 6:15AM on Sunday and were the first team to summit (around 9:30AM). After 30 minutes on top (all we could stand with the winds), we headed back to camp. The glissade chutes were in fair shape. Total time round trip was 5 hours. After eating lunch and breaking camp we headed back to the car. There are sections you can glissade on the portion as well (time down to the car was about 2 hours).
