From the summit, it looks like you're spitting distance from Baldy. Can also see Gorgonio & Jacinto in the far off distance - and on a relatively clear day, Downtown Los Angeles.

Tagged Throop Peak and Mt. Burnham on the way to Baden-Powell. Saw one of the strangest things I have ever seen on a trail anywhere - a group of eight nuns in full dress! Then I got buzzed on the summit by a glider. Cool day.

Originally intended to go to Williamson Rock but there were too many people and it was too hot. Ended up leaving the VG parking lot at quarter to one, hiked up with cool breezes and lots of shade, had a leisurely snack at the top, and made it back to the car in about 4 hours. Great views cuz of the clear day. Way better than going to Willy! Thanks for taking me, Rob!

Great hike-bagged lots of peaks today: Middle Hawkins, Mt Hawkins, Throop Peak, Mt Burnham, Mt Baden-Powell and finally Mt Islip. Lots and lots of sites to see on this great excursion. Started from saddle conduit at 2 from up from Jimmy CG access road. Highly recommended outting (by me). :-)

Did this my first time in winter while thru hiking the PCT in 1980. Since then I have run or hiked it numerous times from Vincent Gap, Islip Saddle, Crystal Lake, and Dawson Saddle. I always enjoy the 2000+ year old Limber Pines near the top, too. They are the closest thing we have to the Bristlecones here in Southern California.

Yep...very long day. Snow conditions were crappy down low for hiking (4"-12" powder over icy base). Nearer the summit, excellent for crampons. Best views of the Edwards AFB I've seen in a while. We could see all the way to San Gorgonio.

I climbed with fellow SPer Tonyo and had a great time. Not as much snow as I had hoped but nice anyway. We could see snow peaks in the southern sierra.

Summited with my Daughter. Most of the snow has melted off. Hope we get some more soon. The mountain was in the clouds all day. Cold, wet and windy but it's beautiful up there in any weather.

Conditions were excellent, about 2-3 ft of snow. Crampons are helpful when going straight up the mountain. I think it's a tradition to steal the summit log, so I put a new one up there (spiral notebook); hopefully it stays up there. I guess I'll have to check, which gives me another excuse to climb this mountain again!

Tom KenneyRoute Climbed: Vincent Gap, Islip Saddle Date Climbed: several times over 20 yrs  Sucess!

Tom Kenney

I've been here several times over the past 20 years. The first time was on a Boy Scouts long-term training hike - we hiked in from Vincent Gap, spent the first night near Lamel Spring, summited the next day, then hiked along the ridge to Little Jimmy CG, then out to Islip Saddle on the third day.



Spent the night on the summit once. My partner brought a can of chili for dinner, which he insisted he cook inside the tent. He then spilled the chili all over the floor of the tent. Next morning, while we were packing, a small group of bicyclists arrived on the summit after poaching the PCT.

Lots of snow, had to attack the mountain head on. Recommend Instep Crampons; steep class 2 climb.
