Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day for a hike. Took the PCT up from Islip Saddle to Little Jimmy Trail Camp. Took the trail west from the campground instead of staying on the PCT past the spring to Windy Gap. Cold and clear day, good snow on the trail in some places, and ice in others. An otherwise normally easy hike was a little more difficult due to the ice. Slid on a patch on the way down and buried about a dozen white thorns in the palm of my hand. OUCH. That will teach me not to wear my microspikes.
