Highland/Silver - Ebbets Pass 9/11/16

Postby cefire » Tue Sep 13, 2016 1:21 pm

Bagged Highland and Silver starting and ending from the PCT at Ebbets pass. Longer climbs than expected, even given the directions on SummitPost and Pete's directions. Also, the Noble Canyon trail is pretty wonky :confused:

From PCT Southbound, climbed the SW shoulder of Highland and then traversed to Silver Peak. As in Bob Burd's directions, I descended via loose gravel shoots directly to the Noble Canyon trail and then took this back to the parking lot. Fun but tiring day :nod:

13 miles, 6,200' climbing - round trip

Somehow I still haven't hiked nor camped at all from HWY 4 area. I've been meaning to get up to Highland and Silver for years. Thanks for the reminder that it is worth a visit.
