Snowshoed up from Lodgepole, snowcamped at 9300'.

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

Also did this one in December 2005.

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.

I climbed Mt. Silliman solo via south slope starting from Wuksachi Lodge. It was a great day moving on generally nice snow conditions. The views to the big mountains to the east were impressive.

2nd attempt, and it was much easier than the first! Teamed up with two friends and Vladislav. Great day. Discontinuous snow in the woods, we went up the exposed slabs and down the snow in great standing glissades.

Was told by a ranger to continue the (very buggy) trail past the Silliman Lake valley to the valley that contains the Little Lakes and approach Silliman from there. Got up the glacier chute to the ridge but ran out of both ridge and time (would have to go down to go up, and I gave up). Returned down the Silliman lake valley. Beatiful primeval place.

Made it up with nice folks from the Sierra Club. Couldn't have done it without them.

Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007
A great time hiking the use trail and slabs up from Lodgepole with Sridhar of the Sierra Club and friends (including HikingBoots!). Silliman Lake offered a refreshing swim after the sunny climb from below. Took the southwest slope up from the nameless lake, which led to more boulders than the usual route (which we took down). Amazing views of the Sierra and beyond every direction. Swimmers' laughter echoed up from Little Lakes, where we could see their tents far below.

This peak launched a two-day cross country ring around the Tokopah valley, east to the Tablelands, then south to Alta Peak before returning to Lodgepole. Didn't feel good about crossing the ridge of Silliman's neighbor with full packs on, so we descended the northernmost gully (class 2 with a single class 3 move) from Silliman's southeast col to the cirque above Crescent Lake. From there it was on to the lower Tablelands, slowly but surely over seldom-trodden rock.

tb00957silliman in the summer  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007
People say silliman is a winter peak, but we took a group of beginner in the middle of the summer. We took some time on the slabs, but everyone made it safely. Ranger told me no camping along the silliman creek, so we had to go all the way to silliman lake to camp. It was very scenic by the lake though.

Nice way to spend the day - got pretty hot there on the slabs. Great (and windy!) views on top. CLEAR day - saw the coast range for once.

tarolRoute Climbed: west side via Silliman Meadow and Silliman Lake Date Climbed: July 15, 2000  Sucess!


This was the first peak that I climbed in the Sierra and I loved it! The views were outstanding, the wildflowers were amazing on the way up there, and I especially loved the gnarly old foxtail pines that grow near the summit. I also enjoyed seeing the southernmost grove of Mountain Hemlock which grow below Silliman Lake.

After being thwarted by snowstorms in May, returned with same crew and summited during dayhike. Caught some hail while on the summit but no thunder, back down by about 5 PM. Good views partially obscured by smoke.

Pretty straight foward, amazing sunrise from summmit. Would highly recomend to beginner mountaineers. Did as an overnight gig but could be done in a day in the winter.

Very beautiful to find a chute and ascend up the north face. From Silliman creek it is not quite as beautiful, but easy for winter or spring.
