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.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
