Mount Cowen — 3 — The Silent Crushers — I remember hearing the words ‘silent crushers’ casually used in phrases like, “he’s a silent crusher in the canyon” or, “there’s always a group of silent crushers going out, you’ll see them in the most obscure or extreme places doing crazy sh__t!” From context, I slowly began formulating a definition. .
silent crusher - noun - A person who is well versed in the outdoors, not a professional athlete but usually equally extreme and equally admirable for the accomplishments, willingness to step into the unknown and knowledge of the endeavor they pursue. .
