Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Mt. Islip after a long trip up CA2 with the new CX-5. Parked at the Islip Saddle trailhead where the sinkhole closure starts at about 8:00 and started up the PCT. First mile very steep and a good cardio workout. Second mile to Little Jimmy flattened out quite a bit and let me recover a bit for the last steep mile up to the peak. Had the peak to myself (didn't see anyone above Little Jimmy camp at all, actually), and from a quick flip through the register might have been the first up there that day. Hung out at the summit for about 20min enjoying the views and taking water and a PB&J sandwich to prime myself for the walk down. Passed a bunch of people including a boy scout troop headed up to Little Jimmy on the way back... was fairly hot by that point and it didn't look like a lot of fun on that first mile.
