Route Climbed: South Ridge traverse from Peak 12,916 Date Climbed: July 8, 2002
Mt. Goode was a warm-up hike before the Mt. Williamson death-march the next day. I learned once more, that if you don't bring a map and you leave the trail, you can get lost. We first climbed Peak 12,916 by mistake. It doesn't make me feel any better, but this is a common enough mistake that Peak 12,916 is informally known as Mt. "No Goode". Anyway, the real Mt. Goode was an enjoyable 1/2 mile traverse to the north over solid second and third-class rock. Mt. Goode has a small summit (as do all proper mountains) and great views of the back side of the Palisades.
