Ascent Trip ReportAfter a quick trip up Mt Catherine, Maverick and I headed down the PCT towards Silver Peak. About 2 miles from road 9070 just after passing through a talus field and then losing some elevation with a few switchbacks, a cairn marks the Tinkham Peak/Silver Peak trail. Less than a mile down the trail splits to the North and South, and the one to Tinkham summit gets real steep, real quick. I will never again hike in possible snow without my yaktrax.
