Awesome hike. I love the Silver Island Mountains. I have made several trips out here to climb various peaks in the range.
Tough little hike!
Took a friend up from Seattle, we both had a good time. Downpour in the Wasatch, blue sky in the Silver Islands. Nobody had been up since Dean and Mikerhiker. http://www.willhiteweb.com/silver_island_mountains/cobb_peak/climb_213.htm
Did it once or twice via the Southwest side, up a small canyon, but my memories are fading of my route.
What a steep bugger! This peak is not about the destination. Its about the journey, Trying to thread our way up through the narrow chutes and craggy cliffs were a hoot! Highly recommend this peak. Be careful.
Fellow SP member Mike (MikerHiker) and I visited this remote peak on a beautiful weekday. We saw no one else and other than a sardine can found part way up, little evidence that many others had been up the way we went.
