Breathtaking, clear skies with a Supreme view. I could see the Olympic Peninsula, deep into Canada, smoke from fires way to the south, and the N Cascades were all in crystal clarity. Lots of air up there. It gave me the jitters. There was a 1" PVC holding the summit log when I was there. Amazingly, a 77 year old man did the climb the same day. If you're not comfortable with severe exposure, this scramble will give you pause, or even make you turn back.

Air was smokey as hell, so no views to speak of but the climb itself was fun. Ice axe and crampons were definitely not needed. I would question whether several spots can really be considered class three, simply due to the steepness and exposure, but whatever.

Very fun and straight forward climb. Camped at the tarns. I never saw so many dogs in one wilderness area. I later found that this area is one of only a few areas that allow dogs. Did a nice sunset trip up to Yellow Aster. Almost snow free... Leave the ice axe and crampons at home.

Make sure to find the right path to the ridge, if it feels to hard it is. If the snow is gone, you can bypass the knife edge on a ledge to the right. Very fun climb.

Not bad, car to car in 8 hours. The final scramble was much fun! We had a Golden Retriever with us who also made the summit under her own power... Not to scary!

Should have brought the skis! A neat scramble in an scenic area. The final 100 feet is fairly exposed, bring a rope if uncomfortable with exposure.

Great, exposed scramble. Well worth the approach. Don't forget to take a dip in the lakes at BC.

This was definitely tougher than expected. But we made it. It was a great day in the mtns with clear skies and the North Cascades out in force with a little dusting of fresh snow.

Success: October 17, 2010

This is one of the most challenging scramble routes I have ever done, especially the knife edge near the summit. I know for a fact that some of the people who have signed this log did not go to the actual summit. Others in my party: Greg Slayden, Eric Noel, Ken Russell, Maria Higham.

Got to the false summit, but extremely poor visibility caused us to turn around. I'll get it next time though - it was a fun jaunt up, not too challenging.

This was my second attempt on Tomyhoi, the first one to be successful; I love the approach to the climb, although long it is so beautiful with varied scenery. The climb was great, although I should have stayed lower on the E side talus, aiming for the semi-saddle on the NE ridge.

Most of the snow was gone, other than the odd patch we had to cross. The wildflowers were in full bloom. The crux of the climb turned out to be much easier than it looked from afar. Here are some pictures: http://www.summitpost.org/album/425649/Tomyhoi-Peak-Photos.html

Sweet little summit scramble. Looks completely improbable from afar but offers several reasonable options. Great views to keep you motivated during the long approach and descent.

Long approach into a very scenic area. I bailed on the climb at the false summit, but watched my climbing partner climb the true summit. Looked gnarly from my view, but I guess it wasn't too bad. I just wasn't feeling up for the scramble that day. The Mt. Baker area is spectacular. Lots of snow up there still.
