A long painful winter hike. It took us 9 hours and all the energy we had to make the summit. Postholed a large majority of the hike before we got to Silverheels and on the way back down. Tons of high wind. I ended up using a facemask and goggles for quite a while to block out the wind. The mountain itself is pretty dry but it's a pain getting there.

Lots of snow despite warm temps and wind. the valley between Beaver Ridge and Silverheels full of wast deep snow. Clear day with howling 50+mph winds up high and bone chilling cold. Could see nearly to the Wind River Range in WY and deep into the Sangre's to the south. Fun mountain with tons of views.

My husband, Jay, and I climbed this mountain one fall day several years ago. Don't remember many particulars any more.

A nice hike up the expansive tundra of this mountain. It would make an excellent trip when the aspen leaves below are turning.

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!
