shakin' the bush, boss  Sucess!

A bit more bushwhacking to start out than I had expected. Took the 13ers.com West Ridge route. Hiked with James W up to about 12k - when he decided his broken toe wouldn't let him proceed. Saw one other guy coming down from the summit and a couple of guys on 4-wheelers. That's it. Beautiful day!

South Ridge  Sucess!

CMC hike for C Classification. Easy and worthwhile hike. It was a little windy, and clouds started rolling in as we were descending, but it didn't rain on us. I hardly broke a sweat on this one.

Solitude on Silverheels!  Sucess!

Had the mountain all to myself on a summer weekday.

Beaver Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day - hardly any wind and sunny - but very deep snow up Beaver Ridge - even with snow shoes I sometimes sank in up to my hips (and I barely weigh 130 lbs) - quite a workout to gain the ridge.
Saw not one other soul the whole day

Scott Gulch  Sucess!

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).

in 2005?  Sucess!

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

South Ridge  Sucess!

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

Silverheels Stupidity  Sucess!

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!

Beaver Ridge  Sucess!

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.

E Ridge  Sucess!

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.

Beautiful Mountain  Sucess!

Wife, dog and I summited from Hoosier Pass. Light winds and not a soul in sight. What a day.

14ers.com Dam Climb  Sucess!

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.

West Ridge  Sucess!

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

winter 14ers.com gathering  Sucess!

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.

Hoosier Pass/North Spur  Sucess!

14ers.com Winter Gathering climb. I don't think Silverheels has ever seen so many feet in winter!

Hoosier Pass  Sucess!

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!!! =)
