Bagpipes  Sucess!

No. 014, personal climber's log

Hear bagpipes near the top but didn't see who had them. they may have gone down toward the lake and not the PCT.

Hiked this in conjunction with Tinkham Peak with Druksel Dorji.

Bugs!  Sucess!

Hiked up the south ridge nice quick hike but the bugs were out of control even at the summit. For a 2000 ft prominence peak the hike is nice and easy though.

Scree, scree, scree.  Sucess!

Came up from Annette and went back down the ridge, bushwacked back to the Annette trail coming out at the switchbacks.

Peak Trifecta! (Sort Of)  Sucess!

With Silver Peak located so close to Abiel Peak and Tinkham 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 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.

Abiel, Silver, Tinkham  Sucess!

Did Abiel and Silver with two good friends. There was some new snow and ice here and there. I then got to within perhaps 20 feet of the summit of Tinkham before sheets of down-sloping ice turned me around.

PCT to South Spur  Sucess!

Hiked with 7 other Mountaineers. Clear day with excellent views but the wind was cold!!

Summit Tag  Sucess!

Quick and relatively painless (though my climbing buddy in tennis shoes would disagree). Great views.

TNAB-09  Sucess!

Started from Twin Lake TH, went up the Cold Creek trail and made a try for the E ridge of Tinkham as well... didn't work out for Tinkham, but got across the drainage to hit Silver before dark. Good hike, easy 'scramble' at the top, really just a walk up with some minor exposure, and spectacular summit views.

Very snowy June ascent  Sucess!

Awesome trip! There was no trail to the summit, or even footprints. We headed for a couple miles along a trail, then cut through a (very long) mile and a half or so of sloped brush. Compasses were absolutely required. We came to Ollalie Meadow after heading through a forest. Then we scrambled a path to the summit, and it was excellent. The views were nice, with a great glissade! (It was snowy almost the entire way.) Fun trip, very underrated mountain!

up with Magellan  Sucess!

good time with my good buddy; felt far off but when fog cleared we could see the car almost right under the summit!

Annette Lake (with a dog)  Sucess!

The 75 Scrambles book doesn't offer a very clear description of this route. We wouldn't have taken my buddy's dog if it did, as the loose scree and boulder field wasn't easy -- even for a tough dog. But we made it all the way up, dog and all. We met two other parties at the summit, but they had both come from different directions. Great views! No real scrambling, though... which was a bit of a disappointment.

PCT Route  Sucess!

Gorgeous early fall hike! Just under two hours up and about an hour and a half down. The trail turnoff for Silver Peak was marked by a decent-sized cairn and sits right at the foot of the NW Ridge of Tinkham Peak. I would very much like to return here in the winter

West Slopes to North Ridge  Sucess!

Lots of snow from the road crossing onwards. Lost the trail many times but found my way to Annette Lake. Up through the trees from there, wished I would have brought crampons, made my way with Yaktrax. Thankfully I had my axe as I slipped on some hard snow slopes and had to self-arrest. Got cramps in my legs and had to rest on some rocks below the summit while electrolyte-loading. Came back down the north ridge via jaunts off onto the east side to avoid some steep downclimbs. Steep hard snow through the trees back down with some more slips and self-arrests. Finally got caught in some devils club (just an awesome time!) before I stepped back down onto the trail and hiked out. Beautiful sunny day though.

Another White-Out  Sucess!

We climbed from the north-west ridge through fog and mist. The sun would come out to tease us for a brief moment. Crampons and ice axes for the windy traverse to the top.

Good views  Sucess!

Made it up to some sweet views. Good view of both Kaleetan and thomson which I enjoyed.
