Silver Peak

Silver Peak (5,605ft)

Eric and Birkan

October 22, 2017

Birkan and I decided to get some exercise in on Sunday despite all the rain and wind, so we drove up to Snoqualmie Pass in the morning, then along a rough forest service road to the PCT junction and Windy Pass. We hiked south on the PCT in the cold rain for a few hours, then cut right up a climbers trail towards Silver Peak. The snow got deeper and deeper, eventually a few feet deep. We popped out of the trees amid strong wind and snow, and scrambled up the steep ridge to the summit. It felt like a winter day on Mt Washington in New Hampshire.

Before long we retreated back to the safety of the trees, and hiked back to the car, soaking wet.
