what a beautiful hike  Sucess!

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

SE Ridge  Sucess!

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.

southeast route

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.

poop on the fog!  Sucess!

Nice trail with lots of beautiful fall colors, to bad I couldn't see sh*t with all the cloud cover! Still, it was fun.

Standard  Sucess!

Sadly, fog obscurred views from the summit. A very fun scramble!

My first trip to this area. I fell in love with Shuksan as I believe many do. Beautiful basin and peaks abound.

Got together with Alexei (Magellan on SP) to do this one. Great views, mainly a photography run. Enjoy!

Helped take 9 teens to the top. Thankfully our long day was blessed with ideal weather. Word to the wise: hang onto your pack at the col after the glacier traverse! July is mosquito season... bring repellent! Wonderful approach hike with spectacular views!

Route Climbed: Yellow Aster Butte Date Climbed: May 25th 2005  Sucess!

This climb got a little sketchy, a large cornice broke behind me and my partner (though we never walked on it). Lot's of snow left, as well as a bit of avalanche danger. Had my doubts a few times but great climb overall. Would be easy in summer.

Route Climbed: Southeast Route Date Climbed: August 8, 2004  Sucess!

Not much actual "climbing" or scrambling on this route, but nevertheless a great objective... the hike in is beautiful with a lot of time above treeline and with views of the North Cascades. The last part of the hike is a great ridge run and the summit is nice and airy with great views of the North Cascades and Frasier Valley. The summit block looks nasty when viewed from the false summit but turns out to be quite easy Class 3 scrambling once you get to the saddle between the false and true summits.

Route Climbed: South Route Date Climbed: August 2003  Sucess!

A very senic scramble in the spectacular Nooksack area. This trip is much more enjoyable as a mellow backpack trip, than a rushed daytrip. We had a senic and lonesome camp on the ridgetop meadows above the tarns, where everyone else camps. A snowmelt stream provided water. Mt. Rainier was even visible from our high camp. The summit block scramble is steep and exposed for the first 80 - 100 ft. , but with solid rock and lots of good holds.

Route Climbed: SE Ridge Date Climbed: September 21, 2003  Sucess!

After a leisurely hike to Yellow Aster Butte(s) under breezy, cloudy skies, the next day provided plenty of sunshine for this fun trip to Tomyhoi. We followed the ridge top all the way and gained elevation just to lose it again at the next notch. Skirting around bunch rock formations which all made us wonder where the actual summit was. Finally after a short snow traverse we got the first glimpse of the true summit block what looked like a difficult rock climb was actually a fun scramble to the top. The close up views of Baker, Shuksan, Border Peaks, Larrabe, as well as further east N. Cascades were impressive.

Route Climbed: Southeast Route Date Climbed: June 1996  Sucess!

This was my only summit during 1996, a bad year for mountaineering. But the views and the day adequately compensated. I want to go back to Yellow Aster meadows when the snow is melted to swim in those beautiful tarns!
