Ascent Trip Report

The 3rd peak of the day on my PCT hike from Dawson Saddle, after Throop and Burnham. Spectacular view from the top! I loved that you can see San Jacinto way in the distance in the notch between Dawson Peak and Mount Baldy, and San Gorgonio to the left of Pine Mountain. This is a great vantage point for identifying other peaks in the region. Also, a glider was circling the summit.
