Ascent Trip Report

From Ice House Rd off U.S. 50, take FS 36 (FSR 13N221) to the locked gate at the Van Vleck TH near the Tells Creek Horse Camp. From the TH Murray and I followed Red Peak Rd and Red Peak Tr 5 miles to Lake #3, from which we ascended Red Peak. Some large but solid boulders near the summit, but no problems. After a pleasant summit stay, we headed down the ridge toward Silver Peak. At the Red Peak-Silver Peak saddle, I headed back to Lake #3 with a sore knee, while Murray completed his climb of Silver Peak and caught up with me later on the Red Peak Tr on the return to Van Vleck TH
