Ascent Trip Report

Pathfinder for Throop and BP!

3- peak day to Kratka, Throop, and Baden-Powell.

Quick trip up to Kratka for Nate to work SOTA. Hiked with Nate and Christine - parked at mile marker 60.54 on the 2. Nice trip up - no microspikes needed. Great activation for Nate! Fun way to start the day.

Next, we drove down to Dawson's Saddle and hiked up to Throop. Nate activated the peak with SOTA and then we hiked along the PCT 2.4 miles to Baden-Powell. We put on Microspikes about 1.5 miles into the hike when the ice and a bit of snow became slippery. There were some very bare patches where spikes weren't needed, but we were also happy to have them in a few spots. Nate activated both Throop and BP with SOTA and we hiked back via Dawson's Saddle. Overall great day - 11.5 miles total, approx 3500 feet of gain. Great day!
