Dude! I have the same story. I have been unable to get Tomyhoi out of my mind after seeing it from McGuire. Thanks for the trail report; your photos are awesome.

You wrote that you were unsure if you would be able to complete the scramble to the summit. Would you recommend only going when there's a good chance of dry rock?

Was it an "easy scramble" by scrambling standards? Or do you mean it was straight-forward because the rock was snow free? (I had heard this was a more difficult scramble)

Clutzyhiker, I think the final push to the summit is too steep to collect snow so it should be snow free all year. I've only done the hike once before so my concern was walking on cornice formations.

Burnabyhiker, the scramble looks way more intimidating than it actually is. Once you start climbing the route becomes somewhat obvious with good hand/foot holds. The rock is pretty stable and relatively easy to scramble.
