Tomyhoi  Sucess!

Great introduction to Cascade scrambles.

Long fun kickoff to summer  Sucess!

This was more than I was expecting ... I guess I hadn't looked at or thought about overall gain and loss of elevation prior to climbing. Three solid sections where you end up gaining a lot and losing a lot starting at the camp near the lakes (felt a bit demoralizing after awhile). The final scramble made it all worth it

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Fantastic Mountain. Best climb of the year.

Amazing view, just touched the top of the south ridge...

Backpacking summit  Sucess!

Spent the night at tarns and summited the next day, amazing.

Lots of exposure  Sucess!

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.

Tomyhoi  Sucess!

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.

Memorable  Sucess!

Incredible scenery. Have to go back

Very fun...  Sucess!

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.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

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.

Great Fun  Sucess!

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!

SE Ridge  Sucess!

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.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

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

Fun :)

Tomyhoi  Sucess!

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.

3rd Try  Sucess!

1st Attempt: October 14, 2006
2nd Attempt: August 23, 2008
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.

Southeast Route

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.

I Love this Hike  Sucess!

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.

Tommyhoi!  Sucess!

Great day hike. I loved the scrambling at the end.
