Started at Thielsen TH; hiked to PCT; then N to game trails that led E to saddle just S of Howlock. Went through saddle and followed ridge S then E to top of Thielsen E. Peak.
Climbed up Thielsen before sunrise then up the summit of East Peak and finally down Sawtooth Ridge to Howlock Mountain (East and West). 20+ mile day with three peaks off the 100 list, it doesn't get better.
Climbed this peak solo after first hitting Mount Baily. My intentions were to camp somewhere below Thielsen, but for various reasons I hightailed it out of there back to my car all in the same day. Despite my heavy pack it was a good day!
