Route Climbed: Elderberry Canyon Date Climbed: May 1992
I lived in Bishop for a while as a child, and I was always fascinated by Mt. Tom, so I had to go back and see what was at the top. I did very little research before embarking, and in retrospect, Elderberry Canyon may not be the best route if all you want is to get the summit. I have heard that the Tungstar Mine route is much easier and shorter. However, the relics at the Lambert Mine are worth exploring, and I'm glad I did it, by whatever route.
Edit: June 30, 2008 ascended from the Horton Lakes trailhead, and this route is much easier than Elderberry Canyon. Climbed with ScottyS and D-Rod.
