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.

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!

Three feet of snow two days before the hike made it imposible for us to even get close to granit slabs... This was my 2nd attempt. The first attempt was on November 6th, but the weather suddenly changed and went all bad. While I was going up the granit slabs half of an inch of slush accumulated on the granit slabs which was just pure joy going down!

Planning to do a 3rd and hopefully last attempt in September

Beautiful solo day hike from Lodgepole Campground. Followed the standard trail up towards Twin Lakes to about 7,500' where the trail crosses Silliman Creek. Followed a use trail up to the friction slabs, then up to Silliman Lake. Had lunch, then up to unnamed lake at 10,400'. From here straight up tp summit. Beautiful views. Next Silliman summit will be across the tablelands from Moose Lake.

Snowshoed up from Lodgepole, snowcamped at 9300'.

Beautiful weather, great views. Summit register needs a new notebook.

When you reach your turn around time... you've reached your turn around time. Exhaustion after 7 hours up meant that last 150' was not going to happen. At least I have an excuse to go back now.

UPDATE May 11, 2010

Well, I went back. Took a buddy too. We made on a prefectly epic day. 6.5 hours to the top. Great views.

Was on a trek with Boy Scouts, and I hiked from Twin Lakes right to the foot of Silliman at Little Lakes and took pictures of the route to show to the leaders to see if they would let me hike it.... and they said no... What a mountain, I will be back.
