Nice view but not Williamson......  Sucess!

When I think of Mt. Williamson, I think of the spectacular views from the summit of 14er with the same name. However, still nice view north into the desert and worth the easy hike.

Mount Windy  Sucess!

Very windy through some sections of the trail, enough to affect my balance a bit. Overall, this was a very simple hike. Brought the dog, had some lunch up top, and enjoyed the amazing views (even though it was very foggy/overcast down below, which made for a sea of white below us to the west).

Islip Saddle

Run by, went over the mountain on the PCT trail on my way to Pasadena. Not quite as grand as the other Williamson in CA.

Route Climbed: Islip saddle  Sucess!

Climbed on a nice windy day, with a view of all the fires. on the peak, a glider rode a thermal literally close enough for me to touch it.

Climbed 3 Times  Sucess!

Done this one via the Pleasant View ridge route. Twice coming from the Pallett direction and once via Williamson. Check out the plane crash on the right after you leave the first saddle after you leave Williamson on the ridge. Also the register is on the second bump to the west not the traditional summit.

From Islip Saddle  Sucess!

The parking lot was full of hunters, but the only people I saw on this hike were the guys in the glider who kept buzzing the summit when I was up there. Wasn't sure which bump is highest, so I tagged them all. Summit register is on the second bump. A bit smoky and hazy in all directions, but great weather and very worthwhile hike.

Long day in the San Gabriels  Sucess!

Had to park over 4mi down the road West from Islip saddle. Hiked the PCT up to Williamson, then down to Islip Saddle, then over to Mt. Islip. Descended to Little Jimmy, then walked back on SR2 back to the car.

Not as good as Islip, but less frequented  Sucess!

Went here a long time ago. A good summit ridge. I'm still not exactly sure which bump is the highest, they all look higher when you are on them.

Trail on southwest side  Sucess!

I took the trail between Eagle Roost and the 2 tunnels as I wanted to go on a short stroll. It didn't look like there was any significant snow from the road, but once the trail goes around the back (north side), there was about 1-2 feet of snow with drifts up to 3 feet. As the trail is really short, I went for the summit anyway but it took quite a bit longer than anticipated.

Route Climbed: Unnamed Saddle Date Climbed: Aug. 6, 2000

This was part of a hike of Pleasant View Ridge. The top of Mount Williamson has great views looking towards the Mojave Desert and overlooking Devil's Punchbowl County Park. Continuing west along the ridge, we summitted Pallet Mountain (7,760 ft.), dropped into Burkhart Saddle, and then up to Will Thrall Peak (7,845 ft.). Finally, further west along the ridge, we got to Pleasant View Ridge Mountain itself (7,983 ft.). The scenery on this ridge is not only beautiful, but varied. On our way to Pallet Mountain, we saw the strewn wreckage of a small plane that had hit the mountainside. Finally, the great vanilla scent of the Jeffrey Pine rode in on the breezes along the ridge.
