Climbed from Annette lake trail, steep loose talus made for an interesting ascent. Good weather, but very hazy from all the various fires around. Could not even see Rainier!

Snow was a bit hard, glad I brought my ice axe. Climbed with Ken, who forgot his! Amazed to see all the ski tracks on the east side, up from the cross country ski area at the pass.

A broken down truck waylaid our Saturday plans for Three Fingers, so a quick Snoqualmie area hike was in order. There are decent directions in the "Hundred Hikes" book, however the heavy fog disoriented us on the way up. Hike the PCT south for about one and a half miles. Since there was solid snow, we did not see the turnoff trail to the saddle between Abiel and Silver. We found a wide swamp/meadow covered in snow, and followed it up and to the left. It narrows to a finger over a creek, and I suspect it won't be there much longer. It gets steep, but the ascent is short. Just before the ridge it becomes a scramble. Turn right at the draw, walking scree, then talus. There are flowers everywhere! It's the best display I've seen this year. I realized the "Silver" is the granite talus piled high. We hit the 5605' high point just in time for the fog to start lifting, first showing us Big Tahoma, then Annette Lake at our feet, and slowly, the rest of the surrouding hills. This is very recommendable if you don't have the time or the energy to hike all day. We saw a marmot snacking on the heather, and I sustained my first mosquito bites of the year. I estimate six miles and five hours, roundtrip.

This will no doubt become a favorite scramble of mine.

The weather was wet and mild at the trailhead, with no visibility. Always the optimist, on to the summit! The slight detour at the start of the trail quickly gave way to the standard Annette Lake trail. It was muddy for the first 2 miles, and then packed snow and ice to the lake. The rain changed to snow at around 3000'. The climb toward the ridge was no nonsense uphill, with varying conditions. Some places had 1-2 inches of new snow on top of a crusty underlayer, and others had 15". Not much avalanche danger, and only occassional wind. Visibility never improved beyond the lake below, but a very satisfying climb. 4 hours and 17 minutes to reach the top, but all 6 of us made it.

Hiked in to Annette lake and swung a left up through the forest. after a short while it opened up into a gully of about 45 degrees with 3 feet of fresh snow. After reaching the summit ridge we traversed right about the width of the lake before reaching the summit. We had the mountain all to ourselves.

Although a popular hike, Silver Peak doesn't see a lot of action during the week. Just 3.5 miles and 1,800 feet to the top. Nothing but sunshine and good trail today. Made the summit in just over an hour and the round trip under two hours.

I have become familiar with this way up Silver Peak and it paid off this time. Lots of lingering snow starting about 1.5 mile in on the PCT. The trail was hard to follow at times. From the trail which branches off the PCT, mostly snow covered until the rock slide at the base of the south spur. Only patchy snow from there to the summit. No views due to low clouds.

Easy access to the PCT trailhead from road 9070 but yet far enough away for a little solitude. No snow and good trail all the way. This route is very easy to follow and the trail is continuous all the way to the easy scramble near the top.

First time up Silver Peak. Found the spur-trail off the PCT pretty easily. This trail is about 2 miles from the trailhead in Olallie Meadows. No snow and no objective hazards found. Round-trip is about 7 miles.
