Silver Pick approach  Sucess!

Accessed through silver pick basin and rock of ages saddle. This was a great climb. I lost an axe I've only used twice if anyone finds it give me a yell. Will gladly reward.

Via Navajo Basin  Sucess!

This was a surprisingly enjoyable climb! I really liked this mountain! We took the Woods Lake approach and dropped into Navajo Basin from the north.
Good trip and good mountain.

Silver Pick again  Sucess!

This was my second climb of Wilson Peak. We started from Silver Pick and went via Rock of Ages on the way up. We descended a snow filled couloir back into Silver Pick on the return.

El Diente - Mt Wilson - Wilson Pk in a day  Sucess!

From camp at Navajo Lake, climbed the North Slopes of El Diente, performed the traverse to Mt Wilson, then descended Mt Wilson's North Slopes to Wilson Peak's West Ridge with my friend Keith. I bonked on the way down from Wilson Peak, but we luckily ran into an Iraq war veteran who gave me cheese and sausage to boost my energy levels.

Beautiful area  Sucess!

pulled the triple play and came off in a storm down the west fact of Diente. kinda crazy. The san Juans are definitely among my favorite mountains.

Fun climb, but the plane wreckage at the top was somewhat morbid

silver pick's gem  Sucess!

climbed the northwest face(50+ degrees) from silver pick basin with jamie and mike. the upper couloir and summit had a real airy feel to them. it felt like we were on the summit of a big mountain in the andes!

Stickin' it to the property owner  Sucess!

Climbed the NW Face with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis, ZERO tresspassing required! Road snow left us parked at the Wilson Mesa TH, hiked up the road to just below the second gate (private land) and bypassed private property by contouring around the NW ridge to get in the basin below the face. Moderate snow down low gave way to a 50 degree couloir that spit us out 25 feet from the summit, great route and a great day!

Fun Climb  Sucess!

I came in from the Silver Pick TH (back when it was open) and did the hike to Wilson Pk. It turned out to be a great day of scrambling with perfect weather and uncrowded trails.

Re: Fun Climb

Hey James, I had no idea you were an SP member! Good to see you around here. I looked for your summit log entry for Granite Peak to no avail, and I'm sure there are many more that you could sign. Would like to see the list! Have a great 2007! -Bob

lightening  Sucess!

Used the typical route from Navajo Basin. I found the basin to be rather dreary with big fields of chip rock. Got in a heck of a thunderstorm on the summit. Did an extremely fast descent down a gully on the west side rather than going back down the southwest ridge.

navajo basin  Sucess!

Climbed Wilson Pk from our camp at Navajo Lake. The weather was iffy, but there was no electricity. Wilson Pk is an enjoyable climb. The class 3 crux gully was reasonably stable for San Juan rock. Did Mt Wilson later in the day.
