Ascent Trip ReportDay 2 of a 2 day short backpack trip.
(see trip report of Islip for day 1)
Spent the night at Little Jimmy's CG. Had the place to ourselves. Heard owls, a coyote, and some snoring ;) overnight temp was 70. The sun hit the CG at 630am. it was going to be a hot day so we wanted an early start. Hit the (PCT) trail at 6:56am. refilled our bottles at Jimmys Spring (2 liters). Trail was in good shape. We went steady; a bit slower than normal due to my left heal issue. Enjoyed the views and the shade with a slight cool breeze. The trail traverse between Mount Hawkins and Throop is just below the ridge which blocked any breeze and the temps were really heating up. The PCT doesn't go the summit. Took a use trail at N34.34853 W117.79986. The use trail is has some loose steep sections but not too bad. We didn't see anyone on the trail. Reached the summit at 9:25. great views.
Took pictures and had a snack on top. Didn't find a register. Started down at 9:40am. See trip reports for side trips to Mount Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, & Peak 8426 on the way down. After all the side trips reached the campground at
