Hiked here from Islip Saddle and from Dawson on the way to Baden Powell. Nothing to write home about, but a good peak with a little plaque to the CalTech founder. Did someone put down it's pronounced "Troop"?

Vincent Gap to Mt. Hawkins. Bagged Throop, Burnham and Baden-Powell on the return. Summit views were a bit hazy. Plenty of solitude.

Road closed before Islip Saddle. I think soon they'll close the entire Crest highway. Probably has something to do with the endangered toads that live up there. Anyway, hiked this peak along with Mount Hawkins. Caught by a squall line; lightning striking the ridge and driving rain. I hustled down the PCT and made it back by dark. Good hike.

Strong cold winds from below Badden-Powell all the way to the summit. No views as the peak was surrounded in clouds.

Tagged the summit on the way to Baden-Powell with my wife. Nice peak, but the air was pretty hazy, so not much to see. Easy to see the potential, though, if you caught it after a rain.

My fourth trip to the summit. There was still quite a bit of snow along the trail. More than I was expecting.

Climbed along with Baden-Powell. The nuns never did reach the summit. Oh well, I wouldn't have lasted five minutes in one of those black robes.

I enjoyed climbing up to Throop on my tour along the ridge visiting peaks. I enjoyed bagging of lots of peaks today in this wonderful area.

Perfect Southern California day, at least in the mountains. Bagged Throop Peak first, then went on to Baden-Powell and bagged Burnham Peak on the hike out. 4 1/2 hours car to car.

Started at the Islip Saddle parking lot taking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Tagged Mt. Islip (8250') and Mt. Hawkings (8850') on the way to Throop Peak. Continued on to Mt. Baden-Powell (9399'). I returned the same way back to the Islip Saddle trailhead. It was a sunny clear day in early May. I recalled encountering some snow patches near Mt Hawkings.
