Date Climbed: May 24, 2009


Reached summit as part of a PCT segment outing beginning North Islip. Pleasant summit and well worth the detour off the PCT.

Very nice hike. Went to see the new bridge up the road a bit then came back to the saddle did this peak. It was a beautiful day. There's still some snow on the trail.

I once spent the night on the peak in the late 80's. A great place to wake up at.

kit foxThroop Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2007
After summitting Mount Baden Powell, I made a decision to pursue this peak rather than descend to Ross Mountain. After reviewing my topo profile, I think Vincent gap to Throop Peak and back is very close to the difficulty of Ross Mountain.

According to my GPS, my trip was 11.6 miles with a combined elevation gain of 4621 feet.

I came overprepared, which is better than being a statistic. Lugging 200 ounces water (13 pounds worth) really slowed me down. It took me Four hours and 40 minutes to reach Throop Peak from Vincent Gap. I made it back to my car in 8 hours and 56 minutes. Subtract about 20 minutes for photo taking/ changing clothes layers, and about 30 minutes for snacks and sightseeing.

The wind was really blowing on top, and I hated being on the windward side. Cold air blowing into your ear at 40 miles and hour is a real treat.

A friend emailed me a copy of his Nat Geo Track file, which put the hike at 13.6 miles. I think my 5 or 6 year old technology Magellan Meridian is not as accurate as his new Garmin 60 series. I'm going with his distance over mine. On a positive note, it adds two miles to my achievement!

Climbed this peak twice, once on route to Baden Powell along the PCT where I camped on the summit in winds that sounded like a freight train plowing over my bivy, and another time in early spring to ski down - has some nice ski runs down to the road.

Augie Medina6 Peak Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007

Augie Medina

Parked at Islip Saddle and hiked to Dawson Saddle. First, went up the 1/2 mile ridge to Mt. Lewis. Then crossed the highway and picked up the ridge trail to Throop Peak. Next was Mt. Hawkins. From there, we dropped down Hawkins' ridge 1300' to Copter Ridge and summited the peak located at 7,499' elevation. Then traversed (not recommended; way too steep) to a saddle just north of Middle Hawkins and summited that peak. Started back on the trail toward Islip Saddle and summited Mt. Islip along the way. The day was a little warm but the views were great on all the peaks.

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.
