With a planned trip to do a 35 mile section of the John Muir Trail in a few weeks, I wanted to do a conditioning hike at a decent elevation to prepare. A third SOTA trip to Throop and a second trip to Lewis fit the bill. I got to Dawson Saddle just as the sun was rising.
All and all this is a very pleasant hike and I give it three stars and heartily recommend it! On a clear day Throop commands a formidable panorama.
