This was our second crack at it this year, and second time was a charm. There were a few clouds but otherwise, the weather was great! Fantastic views from the top.
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.
