Ascent Trip Report

This time I elected to hike Baden Powell from Dawson Saddle as opposed to the “normal” trailhead to avoid the 1,001 switchbacks (not a fan!). It's approximately the same distance, but this way takes you by Throop Peak and Mt Burnham. And there's the occasional views of Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, and very few switchbacks! Temps were on the warm-ish side but not bad given there's plenty of shade for most of the hike. Good thing too, as I a) forgot my hat, and b) discovered at the trailhead my sunblock was missing out of my pack. I'll pay for it in the coming days… Oh and the glider swooping around the summit of Baden-Powell was a nice addition to the scenery. We then retraced our steps, but snagged Burnham and Throop to complete this 3-peak day.
