Hiked up the South Slope and then descended West down to the "Little Lakes" and worked over to Silliman Pass. From there I took the Twin Lakes trail back down. That loop made for a longer day than I expected. The brush and terrain between Silliman and Silliman Pass was a bit frustrating. The best part is the climb up the big slab to Silliman Lake.

An enjoyable warm-up hike for an ambitious attempt to day hike South Guard and Mt. Brewer the next day. (The South Guard-Brewer traverse looked much easier on the map than it did in person).

Silliman is one of the easiest SPS peaks I've climbed to date.

Day hiked with Mike (mdostby), Will and a couple of Will's friends. Mike and I did all of the route finding. Snow line (as of May 31, 2003) was at 9200'. Did not need snowshoes, although poles were quite handy for balance and the occasional punch through the snow-covered slabs on the way to Silliman Lake. We had lunch by Silliman Lake, and then headed to the summit. Excellent 180-degree views from Mt Silliman's summit. The Great Western Divide stands out to the east. I could clearly see Mineral King peaks as well. In the register (green ammo box), there are entries that dated back to 1991. Last entry this year was on February 2003. We came down on the northern (right side going down) side of the slabs below Silliman Lake through talus fields down to the unnamed meadow as Will's friends felt uneasy going directly down the slabs (which we did on the way up). All in all, a great day.
