Went up from Islip Saddle with a great group. Vincent Gap and Dawson Saddle still closed, so Islip and Deer Springs were the only options. Plenty of snow on the PCT and north facing slopes, so we went on top of the ridges. Bagged Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Burnham and B-P. Thought about Islip, but then thought better of it. An excellent day.

Did it again on 7/26 and took a couple of people up for the first time from Dawson Saddle.
