Route Climbed: Mirror lake TH, 3/5/05 Date Climbed: Mar 5, 2005
Lots of snow and postholing. Got off route and into the cliffbands ( real sketchy . I had to drop back down after an hour probing and swam in the snow up a steep slope to gain the ridge proper. Once on the ridge it was an easy route find.
Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: September 24, 2002
This fall has offered a lot of sunny days in the Cascades and this was yet another one. Climbed Tinkham and Abiel Peaks starting from the Mirror Lake trailhead. Had both summits to myself. About 8 miles roundtrip.
