Silver Tip, West Ridge. Follow the Weden Creek road past the mine to where it begins to drop. About 30 feet lower and to the left is a miners’ trail. This well-marked trail leads directly to the base of the ridge (and a red tower). From here the route is long (11 hours from the car) and rotten in places, but straightforward. Nuts and slings were used. The climb was done August 22 by Ben Guydelkon and me.
