This route is an excellent route for a winter ascent of Silverheels. You can find this route on pg. 82 of Roach's 13er book. It is route 6.3 and will get you 3,430-ft with 5.4 miles RT. Be very prepared for wind when ascending Silverheels in the early Spring, it has a reputation.

Ran into a guy named Jason at the trailhead. He turned out to be a real nice fellow. We climbed this mountain together and did not see any other hikers. The fresh snow and the puffy clouds made me feel like I was in the Himalayas!
