Ascent of Morgan Butte on 2014-04-12
|Others in Party:||Andy Martin|
|Date:||Saturday, April 12, 2014|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||4611 ft / 1405 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe ascended this peak to be sure we had ascended the HP of the Wickenburg Mountains. The road up is rough but not too bad. Most 4wd will handle it.
The Wickenburg Mountains HP is "officially" an unnamed Peak at 4480 ft about 5 miles SSE. Apparently the official boundary of the Wickenburg Mountains does not include this Morgan Butte summit for some reason, even though this all looks like one range. Secondly, Morgan Butte seemed lower anyway, from both vantage points. I wonder if there is a map error. In any case, we ascended both to be safe.
