Ascent Trip Report

From Upper Crystal Lake I found a few fun scramble crags on the shallow south rib to the final ridge to Silver King. The NW Ridge has some enjoyable Class 2 scrambling on the way to The Throne. Then it is a variety of elk trails to Silver Queen. Returning I went back up that fun NW Ridge of Silver King and then descended past Point 6719 back to my firends Larry and Jane for an evening in Crystal Lake Camp 2.
