Mt. Silex  
Condition Updates  
Route: Leviathan Basin
Posted On: 2022-08-06, By: pbradley14er
Info: Approached from campsite in upper Tenmile drainage. Went around to Peak Seven/Peak Eight saddle, then around south side of Peak Nine to basin below Mt. Silex and the Guardian. Summer conditions, no snow. My partner and I found this route to be very nice and other than some extra distance and elevation gain, I suspect it was preferable to crossing under the north side of Peak Nine. 
Route: From Hunchback Pass

Info: A little bit of snow in the access gully leftover from last year, and snow on the route in gully after the lake. I avoided it by sticking to the left. No traction needed. Otherwise, summer conditions.

Info: Mt. Silex is still snow free via Leviathan Basin. Skirted around Peak 9 on a grassy ledge system above the waterfall/stream, then wrapped around into the south facing basin of Silex and The Guardian. Pick your route from there. Summit register is a glass jar, a pencil and getting low on paper. Photo: Silex and The Guardian from the summit of Leviathan Peak.
