Summary

The large, heavily glaciated basin around Silver Lake.

Description

A large area with a huge amount of rock, both bomber alpine granite and (mostly unclimbable) volcanic choss. Like the nearby Kirkwood Lake / Caples Creek area, this is an excellent place to explore if you're the adventurous type.

Access issues inherited from Carson Pass

Note: within the Eldorado National Forest you may park anywhere beside highway 88, provided your car is fully off the pavement. Obviously this rule no longer applies once snow season starts.
