Mount Silliman, Sequoia National Park. In June 1981, Guy McClure and I did two new routes on the west ridge of Mount Silliman. From 10,000 feet, a short way below Silliman Lake, the southern face of this ridge rises in a long series of steep granite slabs. One route was five pitches, F7; the other was seven pitches, F8. Many other routes are possible on this cliff, a three-hour walk from the Lodgepole campground. The rock is excellent with good crack systems. A Class 3 walk-off can be found by proceeding west once on the ridge. F7, F8.
