East Thorn is a prominent, jagged peak in the Gore Range. ;From the Willow Brook TH north of Silverthorne, approx 2500' to Salmon lake, then head up the valley to the west, then turn south and ascend thesnow route up East Thorn (about 1 mile, 700'). Exploratory. Route may be modified as more information is obtained.

we may try for silverthorne as well.


Helmet, carmpons, ice axe, mountaineering boots a must.

this is a ACS Grad climb, over night trip.

bring all over night gear, climbing gear and snow gear.


we carried a 60m rope and 19' and 10' of webbeing and 1 rappel ring for the reppel/ decent off the summit to head back to camp from mt silverthornes basin. we did set up a few belay stations in the ridge for a few students so gear for that was used as well.
