Ascent Trip ReportLeft Morgan Trailhead (which was 2.5 miles from junction of Ortega/Hwy 74) at 9:53 am and summitted exactly an hour later at 10:53 am. Climbed all the summit boulders and headed back down at 11:10 am. Back at Morgan Trailhead at 11:58 am. Only soul on trail/mountain. It had rained the night before but no water present in stream beds. Weather was good with temperatures between 54 and 61 degrees Fahrenheit, sunny, scattered clouds with light breeze. Saw a Pacific Gopher Snake trailside on way down. Followed route directions from Aug. 2015 post on PB and they were superb!
