First summit of my 3-Niner romp from Dawson Saddle. Very pleasant hike through forest and the views were spectacular to the ocean! Also tacked on Mount Lewis for a 4 HPS day.

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

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

Date Climbed: Dec 23, 2007


Hike up to Baden Powell from Vincent Gap, plowed through a lot of snow. Then traversed the ridge to Burnham, Throop, then down Throop's north ridge to the Angeles Crest Highway (ACH) and up to Mount Lewis. THen hiked along hte ACH back to Vincent Gap.

Here is my GPS Track, Photos and Google Map.

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.
