socalpeakbaggerPV Ridge 5 peak day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2016


Final peak of the day, found a faint trail coming down from Williamson that leads across and then down a ridge to the saddle towards Goodykoontz...took the super steep talus scree down to Burkhart Trail to make it a 5 peak loop.

klotito5 peak day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2011


5 peak out and back hitting Mt. Williamson, Goodykoontz Peak, Pallett Mountain, Will Thrall, and Pleasant View Ridge (Pallett BM). I couldn't find the use-trail leading to Goodykoontz from bump 8160' so I just climbed down the (rather steep) slope towards the ridge. Once on the ridge, the route is rather clear and is even marked with orange blazes that looked pretty fresh.

If you're heading to Pallett after Goodykoontz, there is something of a trail starting from the Goodykoontz/8160' saddle that runs parallel to and eventually crosses a small branch of Little Rock Creek, which had a decent flow going on. At the crossing, another faint trail climbs up to a saddle where it meets the main use trail running between Williamson and Pallet. This option was clearly preferable to climbing back up to bump 8160' then down again!

Ascended via Mt Williamson and descended via a modified Route 2 that stays outside the frog box. The last part was the hardest as traversing the steep hillside of Williamson to remain frog free and get back to the PCT wasn't very much fun. With Coco the Dog.

David RosenbergFun Ridge Action  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007
With the frog closure, it is a very round-about way to go but still enjoyable. Can be combined, with a car shuttle, for a Pleasant View Ridge loop.

Took the ridge from Williamson to 8160 then over to Goody, and then out the canyon bottom which is now closed. Hiked this peak right before in was voted to be listed on HPS. Really liked this remote area.
