Route Climbed: PCT from Islip Saddle Date Climbed: May 5, 2001  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Dawson Saddle Date Climbed: Many times  Sucess!

This is a nice, easy hike to do on a summer evening. The views are great all along the trail, since much of it consists of hiking along or very close to a ridge. The grade is pretty gradual. In winter there is quite a bit of ice on the trail, but with instep crampons it should still be pretty easy.
