Bringing Dan and Pat along for another attempt at a 'proper summit' (our past trip up Morro Peak doesn't really cut it) proved to also be unsuccessful. About an hour into the trek (just nearing the point where the trail takes a climbers left heading rocky slopes) Dan wasn't feeling that great and had to turn back. Pat went along, took the truck and agreed to meet back in 5 hours or so (which was not enough time given the amount of snow in the way of the trail higher up). A solid hour or so of post holing just before the summit delayed matters considerably though the view from the summit made up for it. There are even two cairns up on the summit allowing for options for summit pictures!
