Some find that when water is flowing strongly and vegetation is overgrown the riparian section of Pleasent is hardest to ascend, particularaly if you haven't good offroad tires.
But lower South Park Canyon, particularly after a good storm, has a few, tall, dry waterfalls to climb, which might require rock stacking and spotting.
I say it's 50-50, but I think the majority of loopers ascend Pleasent Canyon, perhaps simply because the start of the trail is right behind the Ballerat General Store!
