Route will be NW ridge, starting hike from the north on Pacific Crest Trail at Windy Pass. This is less strenuous than the normal SE ridge route starting at Cottonwood Lake and is good for building experience and conditioning, but offers an opportunity - if the entire group wants add'l workout - to add a side scramble to Abiel Peak (same difficulty). Be advised that Tinkham is not the most pristine of peaks. While the views north to Snoqualmie Pass are very good, some folks may find the views of the clearcuts immediately to the south to be unpleasant. Leader Permission is required simply to cover these details & make sure trip is good match for you, and to get any necessary injury / medical condition / emergency contact info ahead of time.
