Backpacked up to Silliman Lake on the 10th, then up to the top and return on the 11th. Use trail along Silliman Creek was fairly decent and the granite slabs area leading up to the lake were quite scenic. Overnight low- 33 degrees. No snow on the entire route.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2016
Followed the Twin Lakes trail until the split right before the stream crossing, from there the use trail is well defined until just before the slabs o' fun. The slabs were the highlight of the day, leading up to Silliman Lake where there were a couple of tents set up by campers. From there I found a use trail leading up the left side of Silliman, it faded quickly and I stayed left, eventually getting into some larger boulders which were fun and easily avoided by heading right where a use trail reappeared. Big wow factor when you set foot on the summit and the views open up.

Birthday hike from Lodgepole :). Took the slab route to the upper lake, then up a gulley and over the south ridge to the summit.

Took advantage of the dry winter to get this landmark peak via an overnight backpack on Thanksgiving weekend. Mostly dry hike-in, base camp at Silliman Lake on snow, summited then hiked out the same day. Fantastic views from the summit.

Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2014


Did this as a day-hike from San Jose, with son Stephen and his friend Kyle -- the hike plus nine hours of driving made for a long day but they didn't want to camp. Nice hike except for pesky mosquitoes from 8K to 10K'.
Attempted this a few years ago but was foiled by a freak early-summer snowstorm -- got to the friction granite but it was covered by a thin layer of melting snow so decided to return another day.

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2014
Camped at the lake above Silliman Lake 6/13.. Silliman Lake had tons of mosquitoes.. No snow.. Successful summit on 6/14. Had a register box and benchmark :)

There is a faint use trail.

Doable day hike as well (based on the signatures at the register)

Day hike from Lodgepole with Jean. Still lots of snow above 9000 ft. Snow was hard in the morning and we used crampons for safety.

I really enjoyed the scenery and views on this hike once we got out of the trees and onto the slabs. Hardly any snow at all so no need for any traction devices. Fun climb!

Hiked up to Silliman Lake the first day, camping out on the snow. Summited and hiked back the next morning. Watch out for the marmot that ripped into my buddy's backpack and my tent to eat our food while we were on the summit!

Via Silliman Creek, the friction slabs, and Silliman Lake. An early winter storm about 1 week before my trip left things snowy and glorious. The gully was a little too steep to hike without crampons so I climbed the easy class 2 south slope to the summit ridge. Down-climbing the friction slabs was somewhat slow-going since all the rock was wet with snowmelt. Between the cross-country approach, 2,000 feet of sustained climbing on granite friction slabs, remote alpine lakes, and class 2 summit push this trip was a blast!
