Ice ax and crampons required.

We will hike a relatively brisk pace in order to have enough time to attempt Yellow Aster Butte on the way back, making the trip about 13 miles and 6000' elevation gain.

Tomyhoi peak has a short glacier crossing that requires ice ax & crampons, the summit itself is described as class 3 or 4 rock when on route. In the past it has been led as a climb and a scramble. Please only signup if you have experience with T5 type scrambles, not your first time. We may set up a handline for descent if needed.

Will cancel or relocate in the event of bad weather...
