Last Saturday five of us...SFB, WTP, Mr. T, G, and I...and two dogs (Dude and Baily) went up Mt. Islip, a peak a few miles off the closed portion of the Angeles Crest Hwy. We wanted to score Throop Peak, but that will have to wait for another day
Got lucky and hitch-hiked into the area (and back out at the end of the day) with some contractors who were removing "hazzardous trees"
Three of us took our splitboards, but never got a chance to use the skins...too firm and icy, we all just ended up boot-tracking up.
