Tinkham Mountain, center. I'm...

Tinkham Mountain, center. I'm putting this in the "Route" section because it's a good view of the route before it wraps around the mountain, and out of sight. Follow the ridge up until just above the snow patch—or, just below the first of the cliffs, since some years the snow may not be there—then what looks to be a cliff band heading horizontally across the mountain face to the left turns out to be a goat trail, which you'll follow to the back (opposite) side of the mountain. It would probably be possible to take the ridge all the way to the top, but the cliffs between where you angle left and the summit make it a technical climb, plus the mountain is typical Glacier Park rotten, sedimentary rock.
