Ascent Trip Report

This is the second accent of this peak by Kelley and me; last time, we did it via a use trail from the north, this time via the PCT and Butte Trail from the south. The PCT/Butte trail is definitely the way to go because it's a good trail most of the way except near the top where ducts lead you through some Granite slabs. Also, we climbed Morena Butte-South Peak on the way to Morena Butte. We parked just outside the county park, and did not have to pay the parking fee.
