Awesome views of Rainier from the scramble up Tamanos!
I soloed this after my buddy Aaron had to go home to do fireworks with his kid. I don't like fireworks. I'd rather be in the mountains by myself. I got 4 peaks on day one. The next day I did Purcell, Huffacker, and Storm King. That's 3 P2k's for your information and 7 total in 2 days. Tamanos was 82/100 for my on the Smoot list.

The portion from Owyhigh Lakes to the summit is stunning, especially in peak flower season! Great hike! Trip report here.
I found easy to get to the summit. Maneuver around from the left side of the false peaks. Rock is loose, and has a lot of sand in between.
