2011-08-03  Willow Creek/Salmon Lake  The basins in the Gore Range are still holding a ton of snow. Above Salmon Lake is no exception. There are multiple large snowfields from 11,500 to 12,700 feet and it will be necessary to cross at least one to get to Silverthorne or East Thorn. Snow gear highly recommended. The traverse from Silverthorne to East Thorn gets harder the closer you get to East Thorn, with loose talus and extensive scrambling past the eastermost col. Easiest way up East Thorn is up and over the northern summit block, then make a ~20ft, Class 4ish traverse over to the higher southern summit. One can go straight to or from East Thorn via a talus gully west of the summit, although it is easier to get up by summiting Silverthorne first. TravelingMatt   2011-08-03  0
