Woodie HopperScott Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2009

Woodie Hopper

Great weather- no clouds all day, and surprisingly no wind on the summit. I postholed a bit depsite snowshoes. Quite a few bighorn sheep were on the summit ridge.

Tip: start just to the north of Scott Gulch (cross over the highway bridge from the unmarked parking area).

Hopefully one of my "usual suspect" companions will remind me what this was like. I just remember it was an enjoyable climb.

Boring standard route, but hit Palmer Peak on the way back. Cloudy but mild, had the place all to myself (with my dog).

After taking the wrong ridge and then floundering about in waist deep snow with Heather "Champ" Pore, finally achieved the summit. Then post-holed back. Go Special Idiots!

I took the BR route up to the summit as the clouds built and managed to stay out of any precip until a couple sprinkles on the way out.

Roach's description of the start of this route was a tad misleading - got to dance across some beaver dams when I missed the start of the trail. After that, I fought a minor muscle injury from my previous climb that made a rather simple climb exhausting. Still a great day of hiking on a gargantuan peak. 63/100.

This was my fourth climb of Silverheels. This was by far the hardest of the four. We accessed from Hoosier Pass. There was a lot of up and down before getting to the mountain. It was a snowy windy day with some whiteouts at times.

This was my first climb of Silverheels. I went up the easy west ridge after accessing from highway 9 south of Hoosier Pass.

rough day on silverheels!

gaining the summit wasn't too rough for winter. winds kicked up high on the mountain, yet that's expected. the return trip has tons of uphill and 40-45mph winds in whiteout conditions made travel, and seeing, quite challenging. memorable experience.

Climbed with folks from 14ers.com. What a slog! Third winter attempt, the winds blew hard as usual, but I was not to be denied this time. 3rd times the charm, whiteout conditions be damned!!! =)

Fun solo day. Only ran into one other party on the way down, and they turned around when I got to them.

Summited on a blustery day, with a group from 14ers.com. A nice outing, though not a mountain I'm going to return to climb anytime soon. Oh, and skis are worthless on this peak.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2007


Camped at Beaver Creek crossing for an early start. Great weather until valley between point 12,282 and summit when clouds, mist, brought visibility down to maybe 25yds. I knew I needed to cross or pass by point 13,004, but never found it in the fog. My GPS read 13,300 so I knew I had only 500 feet to go. Because this was my first trip on this mountain, I was a little confused about exact summit location. Mist and clouds dissapated on the way down and the lay of the ridges and high points became clear. No summit register available. 9-7-07
