Route Climbed: PCT Date Climbed: 8-05  Sucess!

Climbed up the normal trail up to summit 8214 then onward to the Hundred Peaks summit 8244, great spot for lunch and a view, then onto the true summit 8248ft, the real high point of Pleasant View Ridge. Then I hiked down to summit 8160, cool peak the down the slope to Goodykoontz Peak, named after a very important person in the Hundred Peaks Group. Its the high peak directly set behind Williamson Rock.

Nice steep trail with great views and cool deep canyons. Much

more enjoyable than expected. There are several good trails

that connect to this route.

I hiked to the top on my way across the ridge to Pallett Mountain, Will Thrall Peak and Pleasant View Ridge. I took the Burkhart Trail back down, through Cooper Canyon and Buckhorn Campground.

A cool and breezy November morning. Stiil a fair amount of snow left from an unusual late October storm. This could be fun to ski if there were more snow.

A great day hike dragging along my roomate. Running up the end I proved to myself that I'm still not much of a trailrunner. I'll stick to hiking them for now. A great apocalyptic red sunset looking back down towards the LA basin.

I've been up this many times from many routes but picked this one to log since it was an early "date" with my wife Lisa about a year before we got married.

It can be unclear where the true summit is. I have found the summit log at different places on different days.

Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge from Devil's Punchbowl Date Climbed: June, 1997  Sucess!

Climbed the north summit from Devil's Punchbowl via the northwest ridge, then descended the northeast ridge. Steep use trail at first, then cross country with class 3 dirt and conglomerate slopes nearer the summit. Encountered more class 3 on the descent, then dropped into the canyon bottom to avoid a large gendarme. Over the course of the day I was overtaken by the flu, and by the time I was thrashing down the creekbed in the dark, I was nearly halucinating and scared that I'd be locked in at the Punchbowl parking. Turns out the gate doesn't really close, so I made it out OK.
