I climbed from the Gibson Creek TH, then the Rainbow Trail to Swift Trail to Lakes of the Clouds trail. The upper approach trails have some snow, but it was boot packed. Snowshoes not needed. Hike on the north side of the first lake and continue west. Look for the low point to gain the ridge. You may need snowshoes once past the lake. I did on the way down. Once on the ridge head north. You will boulder hope a little then hit Silver's grassy slopes. You can climb some snow fields on the slopes or avoid them to the summit.
