bigjoesmithNice hiking.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2014
Did an East Tinkham, West Tinkham, Abiel, Silver loop. The extensive climber trails (more like a regular trail for much of the way, especially on Silver), made the going easy and quick. Even with a bit a dawdling, did the loop in about 5 hours and 45 minutes. Much of the route is only minimumly treed, so the views are great. Very enjoyable.

Sunrise hike. Great views from the two summits, despite haziness from NW wildfires. I'm glad to get this off my "failed attempts" list, and the SE route was much more enjoyable than the NW route which I previously attempted (although that effort had been thwarted by downsloping icy rocks). The SE ridge boot path is much more worn-down than when Klenke did it, years ago. Easy and highly recommended.

Don't believe the hype. This was easy- I don't know why the boot path gets such a bad rap. Great views from both summits- Tinkham Tarns looked pretty from the east summit. Did this as part of a "Silver-Abiel-Tinkham West-Tinkham East" circuit.

The scramble is akin to a Pepperoncini, not quite a Jalepeno, but just spicy enough. Soaked in good views as low clouds began to infiltrate the western valleys, then moved on over to Silver.

This one has nice views of the lakes. Next time I head up there, I will be sure to get Abiel and Silver!

RedwicPeak Trifecta! (Sort Of)
Date Climbed: Oct 24, 2009


With Tinkham Peak located so close to Silver Peak and Abiel Peak, it was decided to visit all three peaks. We were successful with reaching the Abiel and Silver summits, but had to turn around just short of the Tinkham summit (although we made it to the summit ridge) due to icy conditions. The weather was very foggy and cloudy, but the route was easy to follow. Many paths leading in many directions between these peaks, but essentially they all intersect at one point or another.

Date Climbed: Oct 24, 2009


On my first attempt (10/24/09) I got to within perhaps 20 feet of the summit via the north route before sheets of down-sloping ice turned me around.

I returned with Natasha on 8/24/13 to get the summit via the SE ridge.

A warm-up for bigger things; my first Washington peak.
Loved how the path used the Cedar watershed "No trespassing" signs as blazes (staying inches on the legal side).

Forgot the camera! The bootpath up to Tinkham was mostly Class 2 with one 20 foot Class 3 move as the crux. Signed the summit log on the West summit and traversed over to the East summit. Views were pretty hazy but the mountain was much better than expected.

Started at the Mirror Lake TH. No difficulties on the way up, but managed to lose the route on the way down. Had fun finding my way back to Mirror Lake!

Fun hike up the SE ridge. It looks like Mirror Lake is a popular and fun place for families to camp.

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.
