Ascent Trip Report

Took Dawson Saddle trail up. Came across a lost PCT'er,He didn't want to go back thru the snow drifts on Dawson trail up to the PTC. So we took him up the north/west ridge of Throop to the summit and down the south side to the PCT. We went with him as far as Mt Hawkins then doubled back on the PCT. Cut-off the PCT and took the west ridgeline up to Burnham. Ate some lunch and went down the eastside back on to the PCT and headed back to Throop. Summited Throop again to avoid the snow and came down the north/west ridge hitting the Dawson Saddle trail down to the car.
