Nice easy hike. Camped under the stars at the SW edge of the tarns where I could watch the sunset.

Amazing views all around! Camped at the tarns. If you have time, explore the basin filled with tarns! Very picturesque!

MarkDidierBeautiful Walk-Up!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2013


The scenery on this hike was just amazing. My son and I made it to the true summit. It really is a walk up to the south summit, with just a short scramble at the end to get to the true summit - which was fun. Exposure was a non-factor - although the summit block definitely just has room for one!

metasyn11Sunset hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2013


Sunset hike and scramble during a backpacking trip to the tarns. From the north summit descended directly to the northernmost tarn, mostly scree slopes and boot-skiable snow.

Hiked with my Aunt to the false summit, made the trek to the true high point myself and met a strange fellow putting up a radio of some kind. Best fall colors I have seen

Got to camp, set up the tent, then took a 30-minute trip up to YAB. Waited a bit and saw a great sunset.

Cascade ScramblerA great ending to a three summit day  Sucess!

Cascade Scrambler

What a piece of cake. I think the junction is a bit more than a mile. The exposure between the false and true summits is over-hyped. If you've made it to the false summit, you might as well finish it off and bag the true summit. Lots of flying ants at the summit. Bagged this after bagging Table Mountain and Huntoon point.

Still some snow and an easy ridge ramble from the false summit.

SummitQueenLots of cultural history up there  Sucess!


The approach to the summit gives you an opportunity in mid-summer to do a lot of wildflower identification. Absolutely breath-taking views on clear days of Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker to the southwest. Once at the camping area, a variety of small mountain ponds abound, with remnants of the gold mining era that took place over 100 years back. Views of American Border and Canadian Border Peak are unbeatable, as well as that of Tomyhoi. Equipment can still be found, as well as a hidden mining cabin, but be sure to take good care of what you find and leave what remains for others to see.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2006


I love this area, I have since been back many times to explore the area around the tarns and hills to the SW, aw well as climbing Tomyhoi. Climbed the North Butte and the standard route.
