Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Stella Cheung, Chris Spisak, Lilly Fukui

Nice hike from Islip Saddle via HPS Route 1. Really perfect weather out there today, with the high forecast at 63 F and 10-20 mph winds. Not quite as windy as that, but pleasant as can be otherwise. We stopped at BM 7588 just off Windy Gap on our way up and passed over Peak 8426 on our way out. Six dogs accompanied us on this one; Maya, Wren & XO (Candice's dogs), Piquita (Bruce Craig's dog), Rico (Sheila's), and Tess (Dolores's).

Mileage, gain, and time for entire RT hike: 8.25 miles, 2,300' gain, 6 hrs 15 mins
