Head straight up (or down) the middle; as others have noted, it is easier than it looks. It's only challenging if, like me, you get creative and try to find a better route. I did a very long and mostly wonderful day hike from Wales Lake to the top of Russell (with an ill-advised detour along the way) last summer. As for Tulainyo, it looked like there was camping around the northwest portion.

Sirlight, regarding permits for the Mountaineers Route: I'm no expert on this, but do know if you time your entry for mid-week (Monday - Thursday), you'll have better luck getting a permit. Weekends are tough. Also, any time after Labor Day increases your odds. If you are traveling solo, you will have much better luck landing a walk-in permit.

I too dream of Lake Tulainyo. Just fact that it is.

Its interesting to look at the pictures of it - there doesn't appear to be any plants growing around it.

Yep, I noticed that article last year. I am not planning on bringing scuba gear or swimming either! Just visiting the lake will be enough.

scuba ain't the only kind of gear you might want at Tulainyo:
